Amazingly he’s been here a month already so it’s high time we say a very warm ‘WELCOME!’ to Ethan, our newest member of the Eastnor Pottery team. Ethan will be spending the next 12 months as a Community Artist Apprentice, accompanying us on our all our sessions out & about as well as assisting with our recreational pottery sessions here at the studio.
We’ve packed so much already into the past 4 weeks with arts projects in Ledbury, Hereford and Wolverhampton to name but three. As well as helping out at these workshops Ethan has been busy taking documentary notes & photos as well as learning about the day to day running of a small creative enterprise. He’s also gained a wealth of pottery skills which in time, he’ll share with our customers and participants. Oh yes, he’s proved himself a bit of a whizz on the potter’s wheel too.
Ethan came to us via Creative Alliance who will be monitoring his progress and setting him the appropriate assignments in order for him to gain his level 3 Community Artist qualification. The position is part funded by the Creative and Cultural Skills agency.
