Glass up-skilling for project on housing crisis

Fund my Masterclass in Italy and Help Bring My Glass Housing Project to Life

Hello everyone, I am seeking your support in raising €2000 to attend a glass imagery masterclass in Italy with Sylvia Levenson, a renowned expert in the techniques I would like to work with including ceramic decals and glass painting. By attending this masterclass, I will be able to take my housing project to the next level, incorporating more intricate designs and detailed personal narratives.

By attending this masterclass, I will be able to hone my skills and bring a new level of detail and complexity to the project. Your support in raising €2000 will help me cover the costs of the masterclass, including travel expenses, tuition, food and accommodation.

This project aims to highlight the issue of the housing crisis here in Ireland and the hidden homeless within it, of which I am one. There will be 12 houses in total, each glass house symbolizing a person, couple, or family living at home with their parents or other relatives. The glass houses will be arranged on a lawn in a housing estate layout, and each structure will feature ceramic decal imagery and glass painting techniques. During any exhibition, each house will be priced at whatever the average rent in Dublin is at that time. As rent rates fluctuate, so too will the house's price, representing the pressing issue of the housing crisis.

Every contribution, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated and will help me reach my goal of raising €2000. Your support will make a significant impact in bringing this project to life and raising awareness of the housing crisis. Thank you for considering my request, and I am grateful for any support you can offer.
