Explore Hot Glass

On this unique class students will be introduced to a variety of hot glassmaking - they will have a go at glass blowing, lampworking as well as hot glass sand casting at the end of the day. Students need no experience at all, and over the day will learn how to gather molten glass and form it to make bauble and a tumbler; create beads by winding lampworked glass rods around a mandrel (metal rod). Later in the afternoon students will have a go at making their own glass casts by pressing small objects into wet sand into which hot molten glass will be poured to a make a cast. An informative and exciting day's glass exploration.

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.

TUTOR PROFILE - Suzy Hannabuss

Suzy Hannabuss was born and raised in the beautiful surroundings of Connecticut, USA.  Suzy spent most of her college years and her 20’s living in the city of Boston, Massachusetts, where she worked in the Aviation industry working with Private Jets. This work put Suzy in the fortunate position to travel to such places as Peru, Russia and South Africa – places which have often proven the inspiration for her work.

From a young age, Suzy, like most girls, was fascinated with jewellery.  She often thought of taking classes to get started in making her own jewellery but, with such a demanding work and personal life, never seemed to find the time. When she arrived in Bristol, she found she had more spare time, and so decided to embark on jewellery making courses, and immediately became hooked.   Once established in jewellery making she discovered the art of making lampwork beads, and quickly found a local studio to create and display her work.  Suzy has now been lampworking for over 10 years and is sharing the art with others.
