Creating Glass Lives
10 trainees - 6 months - 3 countries
The heart of Glass Works is a training program for students and graduates in the glass and design sectors. In the winter months 2019/20 to 2021/22, ten glass workers from Germany, Denmark and the Czech Republic will take part in the six-month start-up training. They work in the workshops and studios of Bild-Werk Frauenau in Eastern Bavaria, complete marketing courses on Bornholm, Denmark, and undertake internships in Czech glass factories.
Practical Training in Bild-Werk Frauenau
During the practical training in Frauenau, qualified tutors and glass craftsmen/technicians support experimentally and innovatively the participants in further developing their technical and artistic skills.
Marketing courses on Bornholm
The courses at the School of Design, Architecture and Conservation on Bornholm offer the necessary know-how for the contemporary marketing of niche products designed to enable the trainees to set up a business and establish international exchange and business relationships.
Internships in Czech glass factories
During internships in Czech glass factories, the trainees gain insights into current design, manufacturing and marketing processes of high-quality glass products.
