Sunken Studio is a coworking ceramics studio in central Leeds. We are looking for a Ceramics Technician and Kiln Tsar to whip the studio into shape and keep it fit and healthy. This role is for you if you notice issues, like solving practical problems, and do stuff with skilled gusto. We’re growing and are now looking for a ceramics specialist to help create a dynamic, vibrant, materiality rich, and safe studio environment.
We’re looking for someone who’s a good allrounder. You should have a broad understanding of relevant techniques and processes: good plaster work and mouldmaking skills are essential. The role includes providing technical guidance and support to our tutors and community of makers. You will need to manage your studio responsibilities and workload while being attentive to the needs of the studio community. You should have previous experience working in a ceramics studio, have an undergraduate degree in ceramics and a track record as a designer-maker. You should be highly motivated with appropriate technical and practical skills. Ideally you’ll be a problem solver capable of taking responsibility for the daily glitz and grime of a studio pottery and its community. The role requires some flexible working.
