Visit Guldagergaard at NCECA



On March 21st 2017, the 51st Annual Conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, Future Flux, will take off, and this year, like many previous years, you will be able to find Guldagergaard among the exhibitors in the Resource Hall.


We sincerely hope, that you will find the time to stop by our table and say hello – we filled our suitcases with lots of NCECA offers that we have set up specifically for this year’s conference. We are looking very much forward to explore “the ways that ceramic art and education will continue to matter” with all of you.


Offers at NCECA

Among our offers, you will find a special price on our University Programmes that are offered for groups of students along with their professor, teacher or ceramic educator. All programmes can be tailored to suit the wishes of your group, and you will have full access to the studios, kiln yard, studio collection and all other facilities. You will become part of an international environment that seeks to unite academic research, artistic research and professional practice; three different approaches to discovery, invention and creation – and we promise you a great experience.

Read more about the University Programmes here.


For professors, teachers and ceramic educators we have a special offer for sabbatical leaves – your time to explore, experiment and engage in new area of the ceramic field. As the NCECA introduction states, creative work increasingly engages with “hybrid practices, issues of diversity, notions of community and dynamic change”, and it is our duty to keep the academic practice updated, advanced and curious.

Guldagergaard’s 20th Anniversary

As Guldagergaard is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, we are hosting an Alice in Wonderland Symposium to celebrate it, and we would like to invite some of you to join as well. At NCECA, we offer 4 Alice in Wonderland residencies at a reduced price, so stop by and get your chance. Alice and her adventures have been a continous inspiration for the development not only of Guldagergaard, but also of the Sculpture Park with its many contributions from ceramic artists from all over the world – a work of art that we still seek funding to develop and expand.

Workshop: Build a Soda Kiln



Guldagergaard is delighted to present an 18-day kiln building workshop with Kiln Master Andres Allik (EE), who is one of the most knowledgeable kiln builders and designers working today.


This workshop aims at giving you hands-on experience with kiln building, and you will be under the personal guidance of the skilled Kiln Master Andres Allik. During the workshop, there will be many opportunities for formal and informal discussions with Andres Allik as he lectures and demonstrates all aspects of wood firing and how to work with the kiln.


After finishing the kiln, you will have the opportunity to fill it with your own work and thus get to know the new kiln by firing it. The workshop is designed to enhance participants’ knowledge of kiln building and wood firing (in general).


Sign up here.


May 1st – May 18th 2017 at Guldagergaard
The workshop requires interest in wood firing and the wish to dive further into the intricate workings of a soda kiln – but in return you will get the unforgettable experience of the camaraderie built around wood firing and experience the wealth that the wood firing culture has to offer. Prior experience in the atmospheric firing processes will be helpful, but it is not a must.


You will of course have the guidance and support of Andres Allik and Guldagergaard’s experienced Kiln Yard Technician Evelin Saul (EE) during your entire stay.
