Local AiR


A two week residency in the fall of 2018 between November 7 and 28 for a Local Artist (Bergen Area) who would like to experiment in glass as a supplement to their existing work and artistic practice. As part of their residency artists will receive technical support and assistance from the workshop manager, some clear blowing glass and use of a wide variety of equipment. Housing and transportation during the residency is not provided.
