The Kline Pottery Apprenticeship Program
The Kline Pottery Apprentice Program is a 2 year work exchange position. In exchange for an apprentice’s help, I share what i do as a full time potter, that is, the technical and aesthetic aspects of pottery making, a sense of my business practice, and the use of social media. An important goal of the program is to help the individual grow into their own career as a potter by working side by side in the studio.
If you’re INTERESTED in future apprenticeship OPPORTUNITIES, send Michael an email to be notified when the process is opened again. Here are the current informational guidelines.
My current apprentice is Joel Edinger-Willson. Joel and I first met at the St. Croix Pottery Tour in Minnesota. He previously worked with Steve Rolf and Dock 6 Pottery and comes with a fair amount of skills and a keen aesthetic. Since Joel is my first apprentice, I felt that his prior experiences would be useful in setting up the program here at Kline Pottery.
