Student glass blowing offer
Bruntnell-Astley have talked the legendary master glass blower Malcolm Andrews of Stourbridge out of retirement to offer some of his lifetime skills to a few lucky full time students of glass making. Regarded to many as 'the man' Malcolm has given his working life to the traditional glass making industry and then in later life stepped over into the 'new world' (his words) of contemporary making at Stourbridge and Dudley IGC glass colleges. This first class will be aimed at passing on certain skills and disciplines to new makers wanting hands on direction and fine tuning.
The course will be aimed at intermediate skills upwards, to some extent this will depend upon what the students require.
The course will comprise a mixture of demonstrations:
Wine stemware and casting on of wine feet.
Jugs with a variety of handle making techniques.
Further techniques requested by students.
Materials supplied but bring your own tools if you wish. What you make you keep.. (option can be posted for small charge or collect for free see on day)
