Glass Courses at the Glass Hub
LED Lighting for Glass
with Robin Bussell

On this unique 2-day course you will have the opportunity to create an LED unit to bring your glass to life. The class is taught by local computer engineering expert and maker - Robin Bussell, who will share his knowledge about glass as a material, lighting, electronics and programming. Robin invites you to arrive with a small pieces of your own glass (or some you can find at home or in a charity shop), and to embark on a journey into the tech world.

You will take home a fully controllable LED rig for your work, plus the knowlege to make more and modify them to suit your needs.


Robin works in his day job as an electronic engineer and programmer for the local firm Excelerate, creating tech for the emergency services. He is a man of many talents which include glass fusing, 3D printing, pyrotechnics and much more. He has built his own 3D printer and used that to create some stunning pieces of glass. Recently Robins has worked with us teaching students to design and make their own 3D printed and programmable lamps ...controlled by their phones! He has recently made various LED and robotic laser lighting enhancements as part of an installation at the Lowry Gallery "The state of us" by Charlie Murphy. He is interested in the interplay of light and glass, and is a mine full of knowledge of all things electronic, and how they relate to glass.

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).
