Internships

Want experience?.......Clay Wollongong Ceramics Internship.

Our internship program is open to anyone with the drive to learn about ceramics.

This program will be available to anyone who is willing to learn. It can count as hours towards compulsory internship programs for university students, but anyone who is interested is able to apply. 

On application you will be asked to attend an interview. This interview process is to understand what the participant wants to gain from the internship program, as well as setting the expectations we will have of you. This program is designed to be mutually beneficial to both the intern and Clay Wollongong.

As part of your internship, you will be provided with a workbook so that you can journal what you’ve experienced, and know what to expect week by week.  

Additionally, as part of your internship you will have access to the communal areas of the studios to practice your own work, and member rates for firing. 

We want to reiterate that you don't have to be studying ceramics, however a knowledge of the ceramic process is highly advantageous. This internship does not teach you the practice of ceramics, instead it is designed to teach you the process of ceramics. In other words you’re going to learn how a business in ceramics works, not how to create the ceramics themselves.
