The Spier Arts Academy, which offers employment-based training in professional mosaic and ceramics, is recruiting apprentices for its 2016 intake.
This one-of-a-kind programme is geared towards equipping apprentices with the necessary skills, work experiences and industry connections to run their own creative enterprises after graduation.
Based in Cape Town’s creative hub, the three-year full-time apprenticeship will be fully funded for successful applicants.
The mosaic studio is headed by Irene Rizzin, a former masters graduate from the renowned Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Italy, while the ceramic studio is run by Karen Kotze, a ceramic artist whose work is included in collections across South Africa. Both courses include tuition in drawing, art history, applied theory and business skills
