2020 Grants for Apprenticeships
Congratulations to the recipients of our 2020 Grants for Apprenticeships.
Each team of mentor and apprentice will receive $10,000 to support their one-year apprenticeship.
Established in 2019 and funded by an anonymous donor, Studio Potter’s Grants for Apprenticeships Program supports emerging artists who want to become full-time studio potters and mentor-potters who wish to take on apprentices. This grant program honors the mission of Studio Potter and the legacy of its founder, Gerry Williams, by fostering individual careers in studio pottery, contributing to the life and future of ceramics, ensuring the continuity of a centuries-old tradition in non-academic education.
