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 € 23,778 including 21% VAT.
Participants can qualify for an EKWC 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.
The following tables provide an indication of current prices for the most commonly used materials. New prices for the kilns are not available yet.
