Oxfordshire Arts is looking for experienced Pottery/Ceramics Tutors to teach adults in our purpose-built Pottery Studio. Ideally you would be a practicing ceramicist with experience of teaching, and someone who is approachable and reliable. You would also be able to help students of mixed ability develop their skills. Our students work on individual projects so you must have a wide range of knowledge of ceramic techniques. We are an small, friendly and inclusive workplace and would love to help you develop your skills and knowledge.
- Term-time teaching (maybe half a day or a whole day per week) in classes of no more than ten students.
- Teaching of workshops focusing on a specific specialist ceramic technique, e.g. Throwing; Hand-building; Casting; Glazing; Outdoor Firing. These could be one-off sessions or on a more regular basis.
