KADK Bornholm opens up the hot glass studio to visiting glass artists in conjunction with EGC2016, on Friday September 9th.

We invite proposals for student demoes, performances, or if you just want to come and show us what you do best in your own professional glassblowing practice!


You will get:

  • A blowing slot of 1 – 2 hours. Less is also possible, more time only if you have a really good project!
  • Access to clear glass, all tools, pipes and blocks
  • Access to general annealing kilns, possibilities for pick up and colour preheating


To be considered, you must:

  • submit a proposal of max 50 words for your demo / performance

  • tell us how many people are in your demo/performance – list of names
  • bring your own colours
  • tell us the level of your technical ability – how many years have you blown glass?
