Interested in becoming an apprentice? Or have you considered taking on an apprentice? Curious about funding for sustaining or building your apprenticeship? Come hear the recipients of Studio Potter’s Grants for Apprenticeships Program talk about their experiences together in the inaugural year of this program. Jon McMillan will lead a dialogue touching on the highs, lows, complications, and nuances of this important and unique relationship in the ceramic art world. Viewers are invited to particpate in the chat during the talk and ask questions of panelists.
