Based in Cape Town, this three-year, full-time apprenticeship focuses on mosaic and ceramic art and includes tuition in drawing, ceramics, art history and business skills – enabling apprentices to jumpstart their creative careers and run their own successful enterprises.

The Academy provides a vibrant learning environment that explores the art form of mosaic and ceramic and develops the practical and technical expertise and creative spirit of all learners. The programme is designed to create a local industry with sustainable and meaningful employment for many hundreds, and perhaps even thousands of skilled artisans.

The Academy welcomes school leavers who are eager to start their creative careers, as well as more experienced candidates with creative backgrounds who want to broaden their artistic skill-set.
