Calling glassmakers for Burnt Saucepan social event

Devon’s Teign Valley Glass Studio (TVGS) is holding a social and glassmaking weekend on 9-11 June 2023. Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy a weekend of fire, passion and fun!

If you are a glassblower or lampworker, you are invited to work in the studio and take part in the demonstrations. This will be a chance to watch amazing glass artists at work, meet old friends and make new ones, take part yourself, or simply watch and learn!

On Friday 9 June and Saturday 10 June there will be 2-hour solo demonstration slots at 10am-12 noon, 1-3pm and 3.30-5.30pm. The full studio space will be available and there will be assistance from the TVGS team and others.

On Saturday 10 June at 8pm there will be a makers’ dinner at the Old Pottery Restaurant on the site, with a guest speaker.

Then on Sunday 11 June, from 10am-7pm, there will be a lampworkers’ and hot glass workers’ ‘mash-up’, celebrating 50 years of the House of Marbles that is located on the site and which houses the glass and marble museum, as well as selling a wide range of marbles alongside toys and gifts. This mash-up will comprise a series of open/jam sessions to create one-of-a-kind marbles with the assistance of the TVGS team.
