Internship position available for a person who's interested in working with clay.

I am looking for motivated and enthusiastic people with passion for ceramics and strong motivation to learn everyday life in a pottery studio by participating in all creative stages of the daily duties. I am offering flexible hours, the possibility to practice on your own, participation in experiments with techniques and materials. Prior experience with clay would be an advantage. If you are interested, send me a message at info@nisakimu.com.

Nisaki mu ceramic studio is located in Heraklion city, the capital of Crete. Being in the middle of the island, Heraklion offers easy access to other beautiful parts of the island, such as the beaches in the south, the old cities of Rethymnon and Chania and little traditional villages. You will also have the possibility to visit the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, hosting magnificent ceramic art of the Minoan civilization, the Minoan palace of Knossos, the modern city center  and more. I will be more than happy to give you detailed information about all the “must visit” places of the island. The climate in Crete is very pleasant from April to October and you may combine your practice in our workshop with a visit to the island.

  • develop your skill and assets
  • work on your own ceramic projects
  • experiment with new techniques and materials
