Sturt Craft Centre invites applications from experienced craft practitioners to the Sturt Artist-in-Residence program. Residencies occur in the craft disciplines of ceramics, jewellery/metalwork, textiles and woodwork. Four to six residencies occur at Sturt each year.
Sturt sees the residency program as an important adjunct to its overall aim of providing support for Australian contemporary craft and design through a program of teaching, retail, exhibition and residencies. The emphasis of the residency program will be to support craftspeople and designer-makers who are sympathetic to this philosophy.
Three categories of residency are available:
• Professional Residency
• Self Directed Residency
• Graduate Residency
Sturt encourages small scale production and individually designed work which may be promoted through Sturt Gallery.
Accommodation and the use of studio facilities are provided in exchange for thirty hours teaching. Teaching may take the form of a five-day workshop, or several one-day courses.
