Looking for an apprentice!

I have been thinking of taking on an apprentice for a little while and I truly believe that when things are meant to happen they will. So I’m putting this out into the universe! I want to find someone who is dedicated, hard working, passionate and committed to putting in the work! An apprenticeship is a very unique opportunity and definitely should be taken seriously. I’m in no rush to find someone so if nobody is right, I will not force it! The right applicant would need to commit to a certain amount of days per week and should be prepared to play the long game aka don’t expect to be holding a machine for a while! An art educational background isn’t necessarily required but definitely a bonus. Deadline for applications due October 31. Please include a resume, also include in your email, a little about yourself and why you would like this position. Please also include your art portfolio (either a PDF or online link.) Exciting! Thanks for reading :)
