The costs of a working period at EKWC consist of fixed and variable cost items. The use of a studio and a room, for example, is fixed for 12 weeks, while costs for materials, Cad / Cam use and kiln firing depend entirely on the type of work being made.
The basic costs for a working period of 12 weeks (including living and working space, technical instructions, and service costs) are € 23,522.40 including 21% VAT.
Participants can qualify for a Sundaymorning grant up to € 19,131.60 including 21% VAT. Participants can indicate on the registration form whether they want to make use of the grant.
In addition to the basic costs, we request an advance payment of € 2,000 from each participant for variable costs such as materials, 3D printing and milling, firing costs and other costs such as transport and Cad / Cam usage.
The material costs and costs for the use of kilns and Cad / Cam equipment depend on the size and character of the work. On average, the material costs are approximately € 2,000 for a 12-week working period. This is a rough estimate: the actual material costs incurred are calculated after finishing the residency period. They are deducted from the advance payment of € 2,000. If the usage of materials is higher than € 2,000 Sundaymorning@ekwc will send an additional invoice. If the usage is lower than € 2,000 Sundaymorning@ekwc will refund the amount that is leftover.
