Open Call: Mural for Dundee Ceramics Workshop

Dundee Ceramics Workshop are looking for an artist to create a mural and help brighten up their workshop!

Closing date: 31 Jul 2021

Dundee Ceramics Workshop would like to see something impactful and that is related to DCW/clay in some way. This is open to your artistic interpretation; you’re welcome to incorporate ceramic elements into the design, but this is not a necessity. They are open to any and all ideas as to style, colour, concept, boundaries, so long as your ideas are related to the purpose of the workshop: providing opportunities for anyone inspired to play with clay.

This is open to all practicing artists and students alike, and can be from individuals, partnerships and groups. Previous experience with murals is not required; just a keen interest and dedication in making one.

What they would like interested artists to submit:

  • A rough sketch and/or a couple of sentences about your ideas for the space – please keep this as simple and succinct as possible
  • Previous work and/or links to your online portfolio – again, this does not require previous mural work, they'd just like to get an idea of the kind of things you like to make
  • From these applications, DCW will be making a shortlist of artists whose work they think would be right for the space. Shortlisted artists will be asked to spend a couple of hours developing and expanding their design for consideration, with one design being chosen for the commission. Shortlisted artists will receive £50 to compensate for the time required to develop their idea.


  • Wall dimensions: 4m x 4m
  • Commission fee: £1,000 (artwork/installation)
    £200 (materials)

For applicants that require any additional support, please feel free to discuss this with DCW and they will work to accommodate any requirements you may need.
