Crowdfunding since 2010

From hot glowing mass and fragile glass, European glass makers form young careers. GLASS WORKS creates the space.

GLASS WORKS is about the artistic and craft work with glass in Europe. With our project we support young European glass artists and makers on their way to professionalism. For this we have developed start-up training for glass workers. And we are actively strengthening cooperation between glass regions and glass workers in Europe. Glass thrives on exchange and only together we can shape its future!
