Glass Courses at the Glass Hub
 
ONE-DAY GLASSBLOWING
with The Glass Hub Team
 
Student experiences glassblowing on a course at the glass hub
 
COURSE OUTLINE
A great introduction to glassblowing, suitable for beginners to try their hand at this molten art form. Students will be given the opportunity to gather, form, design and make (with a bit of help), their own glass sphere to hang, a paperweight and a vase.  This is an ideal opportunity to try something you have always wanted to do, or perhaps never thought of before.  A guaranteed unique and exciting day, you will leave with a new understanding of glass as well as first-hand skills.

IMPORTANT! Due to the cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for students to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to cool slowly in our kilns and may be collected at a later time by arrangement or carefully packaged and posted to you for £20 (Our cost, no more).
 
Treat yourself to lunch...
We order in a delicious buffet lunch from our local farm shop at £7.50 per day. A typical lunch consists of filled sandwiches or wraps with a choice of fillings, fresh salads and a cake/sweet.
 
To book a lunch there will be an option to add lunches to your cart before you checkout online and remember to adjust the quanitity if you would like lunch for more than one day.
If you are printing the booking form please add the number of lunches required and adjust the value of your payment accordingly.
 
If you have already booked your course and wish to add a lunch simply call us to arrange booking and payment on 01225 768888.
 
 
TUTORS: The Glass Hub Team
The Glass Hub team are all professional artists and tutors with many years experience. We run a number of furnaces, and although we do not guarantee a particular tutor for the 1-day blowing courses you can be sure that each tutor will be highly qualified and experienced.
 
Our team includes:
KT YUN
KT uses hot glass as her chosen artistic material and is passionate about the process as well as the product, using traditional techniques and merging them into contemporary styling - producing unique and graphic imagery. Her creations investigate the fluidity and possibilities of glass in its liquid form. KT has travelled and worked in many glass factories and studios throughout Europe, including Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg, Lino Tagliapietra and Dale Chihuly. She was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre, but has more recently worked with glassblower Sonja Klingler. KT is a co-director of Minimelt Glass, producing small mobile glass blowing furnaces, and co-director of The Glass Hub.

SONJA KLINGLER
Sonja is a glass artist/maker with over twenty years of hot glass experience. She graduated from UCA Farnham with a BA in 3D Design in Glass in 1993, and since then, through diligent application in the glass bench, has become one of the most experienced female glass blowers in the country. She runs her own studio in Frome, Somerset where she makes sculptural work using blown/hot glass, often introducing other materials such as stone, metal or wood. As well as making her own studio glass pieces, she has worked with a great number of artists and designers to help them achieve their artworks and ideas, including Neil Wilkin, Menno Jonker, Rachel Woodman, Catherine Coleman, Johannes Von Stumm and many more.
