    Sundaymorning@ekwc
    sundaymorning@ekwc is an internationally renowned ceramic work centre where visual artists, designers, architects and other creative professionals can explore the artistic possibilities of ceramics. This is realised in three ways: through the artist-in-residence program, the centre-of-excellence and the FabLab.
    Artist-in-residence program
    As an artist-in-residence sundaymorning@ekwc accommodates twelve participants at a time who can experiment with ceramics during a three month work period. We offer you a studio, an apartment and the advice of our expert staff.
    Centre-of-excellence
    Simultaneously, sundaymorning@ekwc acts as a research centre; a centre-of-excellence. The centre’s experts document everything that is being discovered, invented and created at the institute. Through exhibitions, lectures, publications etc. the centre valorises the results from the artist-in-residence program.
    FabLab
    The FabLab is our digital workshop where visual artists, designers and architects can experiment with Cad/Cam equipment like 3D printers and cutters, or produce their prototypes. We offer the possibility to combine 3D modelling with mould making and realising your design in ceramics.
    Residencies
    A residency at sundaymorning@ekwc is a lifetime experience. Living and working here for three months allows you to focus entirely on your work while the exchange with fellow artists, designers or architects can be very stimulating and inspiring.
    We offer various residencies depending on the kind of work you want to make: how much do you want to experiment? Would you like to use our Cad/Cam facilities? Have a look at the APPLY section of our website to see which residency suits you.
    Participants
    Our participants are visual artists, designers and architects, over 75% of whom have not worked with ceramics before. They come from all over the world, their age ranges between 25 and 65 years. Each year we reserve 8 vacancies for young participants who recently graduated.
    For those who are new to ceramics the introduction to the material can lead to amazing results thanks to the experience of our supervisors who will guide you through the process. And if you have worked with ceramics before, we know you will be challenged by the possibilities you find at sundaymorning@ekwc!
