Masterclass: Venetian Glassblowing Techniques
with Liam Reeves
 
Masterclass in Venetian Stemware
 
COURSE OUTLINE:
This course aims to provide a firm foundation in the basic techniques of Venetian Style glassblowing for those who have blown glass before. Through demonstrations and one -to-one teaching students will be introduced to the intricacies of Venetian-style glassmaking. Thin-walled goblets, use of the optic mould, blown stems and feet will be covered, as well as structural elements such as the ‘merese’ and ‘avoglio’. The overall aim of the course is that it will improve students’ glassblowing technical skill-set and open up new approaches to the students’ own work.
