Do you have a passion and talent for ceramics?

Pottery is one of the oldest forms of art and most of the techniques developed thousands of years ago are still used in the best works to this day.

Have YOU ever dreamt of becoming a professional Potter and creating clay masterpieces that will last for generations to come?

Ricochet Television are one of the UK’s leading independent production companies making programmes for all the major broadcasters in the UK. Some of their recent series include “Born to Be Different” for Channel 4, "Andrew Marr’s Megacities" for BBC 1, the BAFTA nominated "Blood Sweat and T-shirts" for BBC 1 and BBC 3,  and "Michel Roux Service" for BBC 2. Their aim is to make quality programmes that both entertain and educate the viewers.

Ricochet Television are making a new series for one of the UK’s Major Broadcasters which celebrates and focuses on traditional and contemporary crafts. They are looking for the country’s most gifted amateur craftspeople to take part in a unique programme to hone their skills and become masters of their crafts. They will be mentored by some of the UK’s top professionals from a variety of disciplines as apprentices on an intensive training scheme. The crafts they aim to feature are Pottery, Blacksmithing, Greenwood, Stonemasonry, Weaving, Glass and Cabinet making. At the end of each training period the apprentices will have the opportunity to create a final piece which will be judged by the leading crafts men and women in these fields. One apprentice will be claimed the best and will hopefully get the opportunity to turn their passion into a career.
