PRODUCTION APPRENTICE WANTED!
We’re on the hunt for a Production Apprentice to join our team for the fall holiday season! As an apprentice, your primary focus will be learning basic jewelry, leather, and painting production. We offer the opportunity to gain exposure to all aspects of running a small creative business, including small and large scale production of handmade products, retail and wholesale sales, customer service, and more. If you have any specific interests in learning about small business, we always try to layer in relevant experience when possible.
While we do not require specific relevant work experience in order to work with us, applicants should be confident working on small, detail oriented tasks, and have good manual dexterity. Apprentices work directly with the Production Manager as well as the owners, and will be trained one-on-one. Overall we are looking for someone who is:
Detail oriented: Whether that means taking notes or working from memory, training includes demonstration of processes that will need to be recreated consistently with great attention to detail.
Consistent: Production includes making large quantities of the same items. In addition to paying attention to specific details, recreating consistent tasks with care are the key parts of this position.
Efiicient: The time that it takes to construct each product we create is factored into the price of the item. While there will be a learning curve, the goal is to create products as efficiently as possible. The ability to work fast without sacrificing quality is important!
This apprenticeship begins as soon as possible. We have some exciting projects underway, and need your help! You’ll be working with us 10-15 hours a week in our East side studio, in the Canopy complex.
If interested, please fill out the application below and we will follow up with you shortly!
