About Copper Leg Residency

Located 18 km from Tallinn city center, in the village of Vaskjala, in an old school building surrounded by fields. The house was constructed in 1934 and newly renovated in summer 2017. The residency is coordinated by the Estonian visual artist Janno Bergmann. The area is very calm and surrounded by beautiful nature which makes it a quiet space to live and work. At the same time, the Estonian capital city Tallinn is easily reachable, one can get to the City center in 25 min. by bus or in 15 min. by car.
