Open call for hot glass residencies in Belgium

The Glazenhuis museum and glass studio, based in Lommel, Belgium, is inviting experienced glassblowers to apply for a 10-week residency. There are two options available, one for a single glassblower and one for two glassblowers (or a glassblower and an assistant).

Each residency will include:

  • Research and development of artistic practice
  • The production of a limited series of saleable glass objects for the recently opened museum gallery
  • The creation of one artwork for the city’s renowned glass art collection
  • Maintenance of the studio
  • Support from a team of staff, freelancers and volunteers.


The residency times available are:

Period 1: 15 May-30 July 2023

Period 2: 31 July-8 October 2023

The application deadline is 12 April 2023.

The museum and glass studio are set for extensive renovation, starting at the end of 2023, so this is the last chance to apply for a residency before GlazenHuis closes for this work.

The solo residency (1 glassblower) comprises:

  • Access to hot and cold glass studio (+/-4 days hot glass studio per week)
  • Free accommodation on site (apartment for 2 people)
  • Full reimbursement of travel expenses (1 person)
  • 3000 euros for daily expenses after receipt of invoice
  • Use of professional photos, which will be taken during the residency.


For the duo residency (2 glassblowers or glassblower with assistant), the successful applicants will have the same as the above, but with travel expenses for two people and a total of 4500 euros for daily expenses.

Announcement of the selected artists in residence will be made by 19 April 2023.
