Making it Out C.I.C are are looking to recruit creative and open-minded individuals who are capable of planning and delivering training in making activities that facilitate the manufacture of sellable products or artefacts. The work produced could be a piece of art, craft or digital design that will be produced during the training sessions and be able to be reproduced beyond this.
At our art/design studio is based in Portslade, Brighton and Hove. We have the resources to work with a number of materials and processes including woodwork, metal work and CAD/CAM (including 3D printing). We are ideally looking to produce innovative and artistic pieces that are either functional or decorative. We are interested in a range of different ideas and mixtures of media and process within one item, the only limit is your imagination and the management of the resources. Please send us an email to discuss possibilities (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The training will be delivered to our programme participants who will either work individually or in a group to create the outcome. Our participants attend our service due to their previous involvement with criminal activities and their intention not to return to these again. They have a mixture of abilities, experience and relevant skills and are keen to learn and develop different skill sets. Possible disciplines include Print Making, Jewellery, Furniture, Upcycling, Ceramics, Painting, Collage, Sculpture, Digital Art…or anything else.
Trainers would be expected to plan and deliver a proposed programme of sessions (ideally between 4 and 8) that result in all participants making a quality product that will be sold locally or online. Through discussion of plans Making It Out staff, and agreement will be reached regarding the number of sessions whether any work on the pieces away from the taught session times would be necessary.
We also hope to continue to produce the products that you train our participants to make, and if we do so you will receive 4% of all sales revenue if we do continue to produce your idea.
