Courses
Rooted in the traditional glass producing area of the Bavarian-Czech borderlands Bild-Werk Frauenau has grown to be one of the most fascinating places for glass art in Europe. For more than 25 years the International Summer School puts their emphasis on international know-how. Every year in the spring and summer months more than 200 enthusiasts from all over the world meet in the midst of the Bavarian Forest. Bild-Werk enjoys a great reputation for its free atmosphere which allows each participant their space for experimentation and improvisation. Also the interdisciplinary cross-over of materials, techniques and arts is part of the concept of the academy. This means that parallel to the courses in glass there are just as many courses offered in ceramics, painting, sculpture, print, mixed media and singing.
Participants have discovered in Bild-Werk new materials or the combination of materials, and insights into the creativity to use them. Bild-Werk Frauenau is open to beginners as well as for advanced and professionals.

Special students offer from Bild-Werk Frauenau
All full time students in art, applied art or design are invited to Bild-Werk Frauenau to experience
glass blowing at the glass furnace. No prior experience with glass is needed, however, also
experienced glassblowers will receive advanced training and inspiration by renowned masters of the
International Studio Glass Movement. This summer we offer two intensive glass blowing courses in
our newly equipped hot shop, and students can apply for a special price
reduction.
Students pay two-thirds of the course fee only
€ 767 for 17 teaching days

Teachers and staff of art schools in EU and EFTA countries (plus Turkey) should be aware of the new
Erasmus+ funding scheme, that could facilitate them to participate in Bild-Werk courses by providing
funding for travel costs and course fees. For more information see:
