Summer Glass Workshop 2024

Creative dialogue between artists and glass craftsmen, current approaches in glass creation, experimental technology in practice, inspiration for students of the glass school and their teachers - this is how the 13th year of the glass symposium Summer Glass Workshop, which will be held from 17 to 19 June 2024 in Železný Brod.

Artists will have only a few days to translate their idea into glass material in cooperation with glass craftsmen. The implementation will take place to a large extent at the Železnobrod Glass School. For one of the participants of the symposium, for the seventh time, the Detesk glass company will provide its technological background, material and hands of glassmakers. The most attractive part of the symposium will be made available to the public - the work of artists in the school's glass factory - on June 17-19, 2024. Lectures on the work of individual artists will also be freely available. These author presentations will take place in the hall of the glass school on June 18 and 19, 2024, always from 5 p.m.
The organizers of the 13th edition of the Summer Glass Workshop invited a total of seven participants this year – four from the Czech Republic and three from Norway. They are: František Janák (CZ), Heidi Kristiansen (NOR), Cathinka Mæhlum (NOR), Ladislav Oliva Jr. (CZ), Mette Paalgard (NOR), Ludmila Šikolová (CZ) and Lukáš Šulc (CZ).
During the duration of the symposium, 70 artists were created in Železné Brod, who expanded the museum collection with their works, many of which visitors can see in the newly opened glass exhibition in the City Museum. This year's glass symposium will take place thanks to the financial support of the EEA and Norway Funds and continues the previous three-year cooperation with this Nordic country.
