In the ceramic workshop, residents can work autonomously to execute a design in ceramics or find out what the material could mean in their practice. The available expertise supports both pragmatic solutions and in-depth investigation, in various materials and sizes up to two metres high. Pieces can be finished with a wide range of glazes. The workshop also offers facilities and outside collaborations to experiment with glass.
The Rijksakademie offers a two-year international residency programme to around fifty artists that provides space for research, experiment and production of new work.
Residents are supported with a studio, a work budget and a stipend and can seek advice from leading art professionals from a wide variety of cultural and creative backgrounds. In addition there is a rich research and production infrastructure, consisting of various technical workshops operated by specialists, a library and a historical and contemporary art collection.
Within the interdisciplinary environment of the Rijksakademie there is complete freedom in research and working methods.
