IIRG is committed to supporting artists and researchers through access to high quality glass working facilities, expertise and knowledge.
This can take the form of individual fellowships or projects, which may culminate in exhibition, commission, or conference outcomes. Each year some 40 artists in various ways 'Reach-in' to our facilities. If you are interested in working with IIRG on a project please contact us with a proposal detailing what you wish to develop, timescales, support needed and what funding or return you can offer.
