ABOUT THE HOT SHOP

Visit the museum's hotshop! The glass studio is located in The Glass Factory's facilities. It gives an extra dimension to the exhibits when the visitor can see the glass manufacturing process and get to experience the whole process from the glowing molten glass to the finished object, and its cultural history.

In addition to organized events like glass shows, corporate events, happenings, shows and residencies, etc. Contemporary Swedish and international artists and designers are invited to work and experiment with the material glass and find new expression. Visitors are integrated into museum activities and have the opportunity to try and explore how it feels to work with glass and develop their creative abilities.

The Glass Factory develops innovative regional, Swedish and international projects. This is to create a sustainable and long-term renewal of the internship. The goal is to initiate interdisciplinary collaborations to create long-lasting effects that contribute to "The Kingdom of Crystal's" development. With the help of artistic research, educational work and individual artists, the future of glass will be explored and developed.

Hotshop opening hours: Monday to Friday 10:00 to 17:00 (lunch break 12:00 to 13:00), Saturday and Sunday 11:00 to 16:00.
