MIET AIR is primarily aimed at sculptors / 3-dimensional artists who like to learn to work in bronze. For this group, it is especially difficult to work outside of their own studio because of the materials, tools and equipment they use.
Artists from other disciplines are also welcome when not all pavilions and apartments are taken. MIET AIR offers comfortable accommodation and a fully equipped workshop for the use of stone, bronze, metal, ceramics and glass. There is a great deal of expertise on bronze and the complete casting process. MIET AIR offers sculptors a place in the project for a maximum stay of 6 months.(key words sculpture, sculpting, sculptor, bronze casting, aluminium, 3d, printing, foundry, sculptures, stone, marble, brons, gieterij, giesserei)
