Ciao, my name is Filippo Di Giovanni, I have a pottery studio in
I thought that I had a fantastic idea, as is adopting children from a distance, sheeps and pigs or gardens, to adopt a potter in trouble with the payments of his studio of pottery, for not to quit and change jobs. But, I searched on Google "adopt a potter" and I find You, Bravi Good Idea.
Yours is a very interesting initiative for young potters, but the need in this time of economic crisis in
Happy to have known You. I am ready to help You and
|ADOPT A POTTER©|
It takes many years to train a studio potter
It always has done!
Unfortunately many of our art colleges are finding it difficult to offer throwing in any meaningful way, so it's more important than ever for any student who wishes to make functional and studio pots to have the opportunity of an apprenticeship .
ADOPT A POTTER, I believe is a simple idea, a way of helping to secure the future of studio potters.
I have personally funded and trained some 10 apprentices to date, the sale of mugs, and small standard ware goes some way currently to paying the stipend wage.
ADOPT A POTTER takes it a stage further. I would not only like to offer more training places myself to students but would also like to extend the scheme to other potters by offering them a student with funding in return for training.
You can help and get involved by:
•Donating by direct monthly payment
•Making a one off payment
•Help us fund raise
