27th International Summer Art Academy Bild-Werk Frauenau. Glass art in all variations: hot and cold, blown and engraved, cut and painted . Once again the Bild-Werk International Summer Academy launches a new season. Based on glass the school offers a fully interdisciplinary range of courses including painting, ceramics, and sculpture, all led by internationally known practicing artists, all experts in their field and experienced teachers. Whether you would like to develop your skills as a glass blower, lampworker, glass engraver, or glass painter, whether you like to work with glass in the kilns, at the lathe or with a glass cutter you will find stimulating intense glass courses here in Frauenau. You will also find a gathering of glass enthusiasts, teachers and participants, from all parts of the globe, from America and Canada, from Czech Republic and Estonia, from England and France, and many others, – a truly international atmosphere where glass it at the heart of the creativity found here. This intensity around glass is found in the surroundings starting with the acclaimed Frauenau Glass Museum (www.glass-museum-frauenau.com) and the many glass factories and glass artists close by. In addition this year the Coburg European Glass Prize will be a great attraction for glass enthusiasts. The starting point for the experience at Bild-Werk Frauenau is to come with an open mind, leaving all preconceptions behind. Improvisation, craft skills and art are key words here. As is learning by doing, where the connection between the hand the head and the heart comes into play. As our founder Erwin Eisch is keen to say: “I am aiming at the living and for that glass is wonderful. It has so many facets. It is brittle and soft, coloured and opaque; it goes through fire for us and can be harder than metal. For the glass blower it is breath, and for the painter it is poetry.” He also says that “Heaven starts on Earth” and we hope that you will come to share that with us.
