Glass Courses at the Glass Hub
 
Making Flat Glass
with The Glass Hub Team
 
 
COURSE OUTLINE

Explore the historical process of making flat glass, before the 'float' glass method was invented by Pilkington. Students will make 'crown glass' (plates). We will then make flat glass (clear and coloured) by rolling it through our special glass mangle. At the end of the day, we will look at how 'Muff' or Cylinder glass is made.

 
 
TUTOR PROFILE - 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.
