The Quenington Sculpture Trust, Gordon Russell Scholarship Fund and Richard Paice have generously offered funding for an art and design graduate to spend 9 months in Fred Baier's studio as an intern. This will involve 6 months of work experience, enabling the successful applicant to understand the workings of the studio and develop ideas with Fred Baier as their mentor, while surreptitiously stealing his address book. Following the initial 6 months period there will be 3 months to finalise and build work which will be showcased at the next Fresh Air sculpture show in Quennington in the summer of 2013.
Tim Wells, Gareth Neal, Rachel Hutchison Mike Wainwright and other past studio assistants have gone on to pursue independently successful careers in contemporary furniture as, we hope, will the successful applicant for this post. Fred was also tutor to the likes of Konstantine Grici, Michael Marriott, Tom Heatherwick, Luke Pearson and Tomoko Azumi.
Interns will be responsible for their own tax affairs and rent for accommodation locally, if they live outside sensible commuting distance. Some help in looking for a place to stay will be given.
Fred Baier Associates hours of work will normally be 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday although the intern will have their own key and round the clock access. The appointed intern will be expected to sign a letter of understanding covering the broad conditions of the internship and key health and safety at work issues.
