Glass and porcelain painting

The focus of this course is on the creation of glass painting and glass designs for architecture and interiors. Additionally, students learn the art of painting on various glass and porcelain objects.

A wide range of painting and craft techniques, both traditional and modern, are taught, and lessons offer a balanced mixture of classic glass and porcelain design and the creation of articles to the students' own designs.

Enthusiasm for working with paints and materials, creativity, manual dexterity and drawing ability are important prerequisites for this profession.


Graduates may opt to set up their own business or find employment in a craft industry. Alternatively, they may go on to train to master level or – if fulfilling the academic requirements – to pursue a degree in art, design or restoration.
