UPDATE 18/12/10 - I'm always in need of volunteers in my busy sculpture studio and gallery. One reasonably regular day a week or two if you like is all that is necessary but more days are cool if you are free. At the moment I need help with:
1. Sculpting - Help with the creation of my sculptures from assisting making the body moulds, to casting and finishing them. There is a lot of mould making and casting going on here all the time. It is a great opportunity to learn about all the processes involved.
2. PA/Admin - I desperately need help in the office/gallery. Every hour I spend at my desk I'm not in the studio making sculptures. At the moment I'm swamped by all the aspects of running a successful sculpture business. If you are interested in arts admin than this is for you. From organizing the gallery and outside exhibitions to updating the websites and social media pages to general research and office duties there is LOADS to do!!
3. The Great Wall of Vagina - This project is approaching completion but is a huge undertaking. I need help finding sponsorship and fund raising, choosing a charity partner, organizing where it will be exhibited, publishing the book, designing merchandising, building the website etc. The whole things has relied on volunteers so far and it needs you more than ever now. If you have ANY relevant skills please help. This will be the sculpture sensation of the decade so get come and get involved!!
A there is sculpting, admin and research work, depending on what you are interested in, there are loads of opportunities. No experience is necessary. If you want to gain some sculpture knowledge or learn about running a studio or gallery or assist an internationally acclaimed artist to reach the next level in his career then this can only be a good thing for you. The coming year looks very exciting, it's going to be a fun ride. We're a friendly bunch so come on down and have a go...
Assisting is on a voluntary basis to start but with the potential for the right people to be employed on a part or full time basis eventually. If you are interested in assisting a working artist - out of curiosity, or for work experience, or for a college project - and would like to try your hand then please feel free to drop me a line. I am also happy to discuss an apprenticeship arrangement.
