Artist residency

The Arctic Ceramic Centre offers residency services for ceramicists as well as artists from other fields.

ACC’s premises are located next to the premises of Hotel Kirikeskus. Accommodation in the residence is therefore arranged in the hotel’s accommodation facilities – in a room for 2 or 4 people, as needed.

The ACC residencies are available for bookings of 2-4 weeks in April-May and October-November, during which we can accommodate 1-5 residency guests. At other times, we can accommodate 1-3 residency guests as allowed by the hotel booking situation, by agreement. You can inquire about the residency bookings by email at reijo.lantto (at)

The residency cost is 850 € for 2 weeks for a single room or 1300 € for 4 weeks for a single room, including accommodation as well as the use of workspaces and tools. Use of ovens and materials will be charged separately.




The high-quality working facilities of the Arctic Ceramic Centre are used by artists-in-residence around the clock. Studio assistant services are also available if needed.

The residency spaces offer views of Lake Kirintöjärvi and Kirintövaara. In these landscapes, you will be inspired by the unique nature of Lapland, regardless of the season.

Take a closer look at the residence’s working spaces on the Ceramics Center’s studio page.


As a residence guest of the Arctic Ceramic Centre, you will be accommodated in high-quality Wilderness Hotel Kirikeskus premises. Different rooms also have the option of keeping pets or taking your spouse or family with you. From the double rooms, there are unobstructed views of Kirintövaara Hill and Lake Kirintöjärvi.

The hotel’s sauna and guest kitchen facilities are available for the use of residency guests. There is a charging station for electric cars in the yard.
