CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: HOT GLASS RESIDENCY: 1 April to 10 May 2013
This opportunity is open to artists worldwide.
Application deadline: 16 November 2012
North Lands Creative Glass is offering a six week residency for four talented artists working in hot glass. We are looking for artists who have an interest in exploring new forms of making, or ways of working, through collaboration. The residency will offer the opportunity to create work and collaborate with other artists while also developing new techniques and ideas. This opportunity will allow you to enhance your own practice while working within a peer group to share and gain further skills. Artists-in-residence benefit from a comprehensive range of facilities in the Alastair Pilkington Studio.
Each residency brings four glass and visual artists, at different stages of their career, to live and work together here for six to eight weeks, or here and another venue for mixed-media partnership residencies. Through collaboration, cross fertilisation of ideas and practice, the residency creates new opportunities for learning, exploration and creative development.
Residents come from the UK and overseas and this international blend of ideas and talent is one of the key strengths of the residencies. Our Alastair Pilkington Studio enables the artists in residence to benefit from a wide range of facilities. Artists often cite their residency as a seminal moment in their work, where the space and time afforded at North Lands Creative Glass has led to a new body of work, or new direction which has significantly influenced their work.
