Role

We are seeking people who share our values and have the skills and qualities to work in our creative day service providing support to adults with learning disabilities and autism. The focus of the role is to support and nurture the personal growth and practical skills of individual members (service users) in meaningful and creative work within our Print studio.

We believe that in meaningful creative work there is real therapy for all. The Print Studio produces high quality screen printed products for selling or donating. The strong emphasis placed on producing high quality work with an explorative and exciting creative process behind it means our members and coworkers have a collective sense of fulfilment as a group of artists and designers in collaboration with each other. We are proud to be part of The Camphill movement and the live the ethos of Camphill daily in our work, Working and Growing together.

We work in a fully equipped, beautiful screen printing studio surrounded by countryside and with fantastic views over Edinburgh. We use high quality materials and ethical, organic fabrics.

Artistic skill and an understanding of the explorative development process that goes into good design is essential, a higher education qualification in a visually creative subject preferable. Warmth, friendliness, empathy and a willingness to learn and adapt to the needs of people with additional support needs is essential. As is knowledge and experience in screen printing and a real enthusiasm and excitement about using the method to make finished products. You will also need to be open to being part of a Camphill community and all that brings.

Tiphereth is a Camphill community based on the edge of the Pentland hills in Edinburgh supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism in a range of day services, supported living, residential care, and social enterprises.
