Studio Glazing Assistant Needed.  

We're getting really busy in the studio and could use a little help. This is a great part time gig for someone on Whidbey Island who likes working with their hands, producing something meaningful, and values workplace equality and a peaceful environment.

 

Pay is $18/hour. 

Schedule is part time: 10-15 hrs, 2 days per week. Exact hours are flexible.

No pottery making experience is needed. You will need the ability to do repetitive and detailed physical labor, occasionally lift heavy things, use an ipad and computer, show up reliably and punctually, and be friendly to customers. Glazing the pots will be a major part of the job, and requires close attention to detail. Familiarity with clay is a bonus, but not necessary. We’re happy to train the right person.

Duties will include:

  • Sanding and glazing pottery (this is the vast majority of the job)
  • Recycling, wedging, and weighing clay
  • Cleaning and mopping
  • Loading and unloading the kiln
  • Packing orders for shipping
  • Mixing glaze and slip
  • Chatting with and selling to studio visitors during open hours

Just so we're on the same page: Your duties and training will not include throwing or trimming the pots. This is not a production potter or an apprentice position, and there is no room for you to use the studio for your own work.

To apply please email briggsshoreceramics@gmail.com with a resume, and be sure to tell us why this job appeals to you.
