All interns are paid a fair wage – we do not exploit those seeking entry to the industry – and we are happy to organise accommodation as necessary.

Previous interns have traveled from as far away as Germany and the Czech Republic to gain experience and some have returned for multiple years during breaks from formal education. Part of the reason for this is that while interns work under the guidance of experienced glass artists, they are allowed to work on real projects and perform meaningful tasks.
