Glass Courses at the Glass Hub
 
GLASSBLOWING WEEKEND
with The Glass Hub Team
 
Glass Blowing Course
 
COURSE OUTLINE
On this fantastic introductory weekend of glassblowing you will learn how to gather, form and blow hot molten glass straight from the furnace.   With your own choice of colour, you will proceed to blow a glass sphere, a paperweight, and a vase.  The first day is quick-paced as we focus on hands-on techniques, as well as enjoyment of this fascinating material.  On the second day we continue to gain expertise in blowing techniques, as we explore some further shapes and skills in the bench, including a tumbler, a bowl and a plate!  Use your own creativity to design the pattern and colours of your pieces, and keep an open mind for the final result!
 
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).
 
TUTOR(S): 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.
