Dundee Ceramics Workshop (DCW) are looking for new volunteer committee members to join our community of artists and clay enthusiasts. This opportunity includes assisting with the running of our workshop and contributing to the development and vision for DCW.
An important part of running DCW is making sure the space is regularly open for the use of our members and the public. Successful applicants should ideally be able to commit at least four hours a week to opening and supervising the workshop, as well as attending weekly committee meetings and helping with the day-to-day running of DCW.
General responsibilities include opening and closing the space, money handling, supervising the workshop and general housekeeping. Additional responsibilities include responding to emails and enquiries; communicating with the general public; PR and marketing; liaising with other organisations; facilitating/supervising and attending events; positively representing DCW in public; and contributing to the development and vision for Tin Roof and DCW.
We have high expectations of our committee members, and they should be honest, reliable, trustworthy and responsible. In return, they have access to the workshop and are welcome to sit in on classes, learning valuable ceramics skills and networking with other ceramicists.
Applicants must be based in or near Dundee. No formal education or qualifications are necessary but applicants must demonstrate an interest and/or understanding of ceramics and a willingness to learn. We are also interested in welcoming new committee members with a background in marketing, business, or similar.
We expect volunteer committee members to commit to opening the workshop for at least three hours a week, plus attending weekly committee meetings on Tuesday evenings. If selected, you will be given an induction to the space; support and guidance; health and safety training; and opportunities for formal qualifications and training if interested.
DCW is a Tin Roof project and charity run by volunteers who are active artists and makers in Dundee.
