Illyria Pottery Internships

We've held an internship for The University of Oxford's The Ruskin School of Art since 2014. Each term we bring on 5-6 individuals interested in ceramics to learn from Katie, help run our shop, and gain day-to-day studio experience. The internship is open to all (including non students). Regardless of background or experience level, if you're interested do let us know, and we'd be happy to interview you to see if you'd be a good fit for Illyria Pottery. 

The internship provides a dynamic experience, which blends acquiring practical techniques in clay (throwing, handbuilding, glazing, firing, etc.) with running a studio and gallery space. The internship is unpaid, but Katie offers free instruction, studio time, materials, and firing in exchange for the studio and shop work. Many of our interns have returned for more than one term, and we're more than happy to extend the internship to successful interns for further terms.

Interns work 1 full day per week (10:15am-5:45pm) from 1st week through 9th week. Studio time and instruction is then offered on Monday nights from 5:45-9:00. We also run internships during holiday and summer breaks. 

We will be next interviewing on 13th March 2017. To be considered, please contact Katie Coston ( We look forward to hearing from you!
