Artists-in-Residence – Your Time to Explore and Experiment


At Guldagergaard, the Artist-in-Residence programme is the most important aspect of the center.


To be an Artist-in-Residence at Guldagergaard means to become part of a wonderfully international workspace that stimulates innovation, originality, and the desire to experiment. Our focus is on creating an educational environment that promotes development and collaboration, and resident artists always have the assistance of our skilled staff.


We believe that creating a network and a dialogue within the ceramic community is key to both personal development and to the advancement and future elaboration of the ceramic arts, and we hope to encourage the exchange of knowledge and research into materials, techniques and ideas.


At Guldagergaard, we unite three fields of knowledge: academic research, artistic research and professional practice. We believe that all three are necessary perspectives that will lead to new ways of discovering, inventing and creating. Wether you would like to find ways to match the demand of the commercial market, do high-level research or create groundbreaking new design, we will provide you with the best possible frames for you exploration and experimentation.




Guldagergaard only selects artists, designers and craftsmen by application through the application form on the website. If you would like to know more about what is requested of applicants, you can find a comprehensive list here.




Artists will have their own area in the studio building and have access to all kilns as well as our other facilities.
All artists have full access to our archives and the largest studio collection in Northern Europe. Artists use the collection for research and inspiration.


All artists will be accommodated in the beautiful manor house from 1910, which has been the beating heart of the center for a century. It houses up to 12 artists at a time and this is an intense experience that all our resident artists say they wouldn’t live without. There is a constantly ceramic dialogue going on and networking among artists.
Around the center, there are lots of supermarkets to shop in, and you will be provided with a shelf in the fridge as well as in the cupboards, where you can store your food. There is a special, communal spirit in the house, where artists take turns cooking the evening meal, which is an event where you eat lovely food made by your studio colleagues – this also provides you with more time in the studio all other evenings.


Artists can either stay in double or single rooms. The rooms have both pillows and duvets, and we can provide you with linen and towels as well. All rooms have recently been redecorated and are different from one another.
