Samson Designs Description of Apprenticeship:

I am currently in a revolutionary new educational program called UnCollege. There are four phases in the program, the third of which is an internship phase. The object of the internship phase is to allow the student (me) to have the opportunity to gain real world work experience, to show them how they act in that type of environment so that they might be better equipped to handle it in the future. During the first phase of the program I ended up getting an internship with Public Glass, San Francisco's only public access glassblowing studio, where I was able to have this type of experience. Now I believe I am ready for the next step, an extensive apprenticeship into the world of glass art. I would like to be able to learn everything a practicing lampworker needs to know, and I have the drive to back it up.
I am looking for any glass related apprenticeship opportunities during the third phase of my program that starts when I get back from Australia in April. The required time length is three months, but if all goes well I am willing to stay as long as it takes for you to feel satisfied with the work I put out. I want to be able to tell people who I trained under, and I want you to feel comfortable allowing me to say that.
