This one-off class is a historical glance back into the history of blown glass, with two days packed full of demos and discussion. We will take you on a journey through some of the key eras in glassmaking through technical demonstrations by master craftsman David Barry. We will explore the history of Egyptian glass, Roman glassmaking, Forest Glass, Venetian glassware and English Stemware. Between these jaw dropping demos, there will be a series of short slideshows with information and discussion time. Refreshments are provided and a one hour break with a buffet lunch.

A highly informative event, open to all levels of glass enthusiast.

After beginning to work for Bristol Blue glass when he was just 19 years old, his skill set was such that by the time he was 26 he became hot floor manager at Bristol Blue and has been in this post for the last nine years. David specialises in our hot glass sculpture work and is highly skilled in goblet making.
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.
