Deadline for applications: 1 May 2018
The benefits of exposure to professional practitioners has long been recognised by the LSAD Ceramics programme. In 2015 an innovative, formal Residency for practitioners was established within the programme as a staple part of artistic investigation, dialogue and educational practice. LSAD believe that students observing the practice and discipline of resident artists and interacting with them over a continuous period will provide invaluable insights to practice outside of education. In turn LSAD offer emerging makers time, space, facilities and materials within our dynamic studios to develop their studio practice.
Artists begin their residency in mid-September. Over the course of their residency, participants make a number of presentations on their practice and give a demonstration of skills that are specific to their making processes. The residency culminates in an exhibition of new works completed by participants during their time within the ceramics programme. This is accompanied by an exhibition of process, demonstrating both the creative process and the technical development of the work.
LSAD welcome applicants from the breadth of ceramic practice, selecting two annually to work within the ceramics facilities for six months. The residency benefits both practitioner and students through an exchange of experience, skills, materials and facilities and affords students a valuable opportunity to work alongside and engage with professionals in practice.
