I hate to say this, but I don't know of any *formal* apprenticeship offerings in Canada at all, not the way you sometimes see in the States, or what Lisa Hammond is getting going in the UK. Every once in a while though, you hear about someone talking their way into some sort mentorship relationship.
You mentioned you've already done school: where have you gone, and how far did you get?
What direction are you looking to go in? Are you interested In a more artistic stream, or are you looking for more "business model" type information to round out your existing education? Most importantly, where are you now, geographically?
Thanks for your response. I am currently in Ontario, but looking to move to southern AB. Ideally I would like to end up in the Calgary region, but my family is in Lethbridge. I have a B.A. and a Bachelor of Social Work, but i'm finding that my passion is in ceramics. I've taken a few ceramics courses in university, but most of my learning has been self directed up until this point. If I had the time/money to do another degree, I would apply to ACAD... maybe one day I could do that, but at the moment it would be difficult.
Right now I'm looking for a bit of both. I'm looking for someone who can help me to develop my artistic skill (I tend to lean towards functional pottery, but I'm certainly interested in branching out into the world of visual arts). I've started making my own glazes, but someone who could help me to learn this would be great.
I also need guidance in developing a business model. One day I would love to be selling/teaching youth in a non profit setting (to use some of my social work degree). I definitely have a long way to go, but this is something I am very passionate about.
