We are now seeking applications from artists and designers to undertake a solo or collaborative residency at Kingston Arts’ newly-established Ceramics Studio. The residency will run over 6 or 8 weeks commencing in March 2019.

As part of the license agreement, the resident artist is expected to facilitate a minimum of 3 workshop classes for members of the general public to attend. This joint-initiative will assist the resident artist to generate an income during their residency and off-set the costs of studio hire, whilst sharing their skills with the wider community.

About the studio

The Ceramics Studio is located at Kingston Arts Centre & City Hall, 979-985 Nepean Hwy. Moorabbin. It is readily accessible by both car and public transport.

While the current Kingston Arts Studio Program provides open-plan studio spaces for artists working in low-risk mediums, including painting, drawing and digital design. The Ceramics Studio will provide much-needed facilities for artists and designers working in ceramics, design and small sculpture.

The area also includes galleries, theatre, outdoor projection sites, Moorabbin Public Library, Melbourne Artists’ Supplies, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants all within walking distance of the Ceramics Studio.
