Priests Mill Glassworks Opportunities

Priests Mill Glassworks seeks a partner, or partners to help achieve its vision of providing a supportive environment for all Glass Arts in Eastern Ontario, Canada

The Glassworks is located in the historic limestone gristmill structure, overlooking the millpond and waterfall in Alexandria Ontario. The studio/gallery occupies the street level with a storage/workshop on the second floor (~1400 sq.ft. each). Below at the falls level is a pub & restaurant while commercial offices occupy the balance of the mill complex.

This studio was built to serve the particular off-hand glass blowing needs of its founder. Exceptionally low operating costs are achieved with creative solutions minimizing the energy, raw materials and overhead costs. Current activities include warm glass classes, introductory and beginning glass blowing as well as serving as the creative base for a cadre of more advanced users.

To see more of what we have been doing please visit: https://www.facebook.com/OntarioGB

The on-site gallery co-exists with the studio but operates independently to promote the creations of 7 artists.
Priests Mill Glassworks has two possible opportunities to be filled by one or more entrepreneurially minded candidates

 

The Prime Bench will:

- Manage all the technical aspects of studio including maintenance
- Teach all levels of off-hand glassblowing
- Produce his/her own line of creative works
- Assist the founder in exploring new techniques in glass art

The Gallery/Studio Manager will work with the founder to:

- Create and execute, business and marketing plans that ensure sustainability
- Provide all administrative functions
- Manage all aspects of our Internet presence
- Attend during gallery hours, to provide sales assistance.
-Manage and attend Arts and Crafts shows.

Although these are not salaried positions, the successful candidate(s) will benefit from the cash flow that results directly from their efforts. Specific arrangements will be tailored to take into account the individual's needs and assets.
