Glass residency Op

Residency Opportunities:

Broadfield House Glass Museum & the Red House Glass Cone Residency

This project will provide a glassmaker, experienced in kiln-work, with the opportunity to undertake an exciting residency at Broadfield House Glass Museum & the Red House Glass Cone. Both venues are run by Dudley Museums Service (Dudley MBC).

The residency will enable the maker to develop their own practice and create new work but is also designed to introduce new audiences to the excitement of glass as a creative medium. During the residency the maker will be expected to lead at least 10 workshops at the Red House Glass Cone involving local schools, community and adult groups. The maker will also be expected to open their studio, at Broadfield House Glass Museum, to the public for part of the time.

The residency will last for a period of 13 weeks from January - April 2008. The maker will be expected to be in residence for approximately 2.5 days per week. The artist's fee is £6,000. Additional funding is available for materials and equipment.
