Volunteering

Volunteers are an extremely important part of Art in Clay and help Margo Schmidt (Show/Helpers Manager) by ensuring that on the Friday, Saturday & Sunday of the show there is support given in the relevant areas.

Volunteering at Art in Clay is a great way for up and coming potters  and those with an interest in ceramics to become immersed in a unique and creative world. Its also a great opportunity to see first hand what it is like exhibiting at a renowned ceramic show.

What is expected from Volunteers

Before the show opens to the public all volunteers will attend a briefing session and receive any necessary training for the relevant tasks.

The volunteers briefing will be given by Show/Helpers Manager Margo Schmidt on Thursday at 4pm. For those that aren’t camping there will be an additional induction on Friday morning at 9am.

Volunteers will not be able to work unless they have attended a briefing which will include information on Manual Handling in line with HSE guidelines.

At the volunteers briefing a show programme, a t-shirt, hat (if needed) and a daily lunch voucher will be provided.

All decisions on the site must go through Margo (Helpers Manager) or Hannah (Show Director) who will log any decisions made.

Examples of tasks at the show include:

  • Assisting exhibitors – allowing them to take breaks etc
  • Helping in the Talk/Demo marquee
  • Assisting visitors in the Clay Creation Zone
  • Helping visitors where necessary
