23 Mar 2018

Budding silversmiths and ceramicists ambitious to develop their skills and experience are being encouraged to apply for Yorkshire Artspace’s 2018 Starter Studio Programmes.

Yorkshire Artspace runs two Starter Studio programmes in Sheffield for designer silversmiths and jewellers and another for ceramicists.  The courses are designed to help entrepreneurial artists develop their skills in a supportive and creative environment. 

The two year programmes are sponsored by the Sheffield Assay Office and include: 

The Starter Studio mentors are all experienced, nationally known silversmiths and/or jewellers, including include Brett Payne, Chris Knight, Maria Hanson, Rebecca Joselyn, Coilin O’Dubhghaill and Jennie Gill.

The studio space costs £120 per month (inclusive of heat/power) plus a one month bond, which is repayable on leaving the programme. Participants will then receive a 20 per cent discount off the price of regular studio rental for two years following the completion of the programme (subject to studio availability).

You can apply for the Starter Studio programmes now. For more information and an application pack please visit
