Walking the World of Glass

W a l z ² - an extensive educational glass journey around the globe.

MOTIvation

Driven by the desire to increase our knowledge that we have gained throughout our apprenticeship, we have developed the project Walz² - Walking the World of Glass.

Within the crafts, journeyman years (German Wanderjahre, Walz) have a long tradition: They root back to medieval times, when travelling for several years after having completed the apprenticeship was a common thing to do.

 

Motivated by the goal of running our own glass studio in the near future, we contacted highly professional glassblowers and -artists to do intensive internships. The result is a route along which we are going to visit some of the most important glass centers and work at renowed studios worldwide
