About this course
Waller & Wood is an independent city-centre shop run by Carole Waller, a painter, and Gary Wood, a potter. The store sells Waller's painted silk and cotton clothing alongside Wood's pottery and various other vendors' goods, including jewelry, bags, notebooks, and candles.
The placement invites the development of a plethora of skills, and the intern can split their time between the shop and the studio. Working at the studio may involve washing, ironing, and painting fabrics, learning how to screen print and observing classes; work in the shop could include blogging, developing the online store, photographing and measuring products, assisting with a photo shoot and rearranging store displays. The successful applicant will therefore be adaptable, independent-minded and interested in textiles, design, and retail.
