About the Course
Under the expert tuition of Will Shakspeare this day class will give you an opportunity to try your hand at blowing a small clear vessel and dish in the morning and after lunch you will start to explore basic colour techniques, making a coloured blown vessel and a paperweight. You will gain an insight into the highly skilled craft of glass blowing and have an understanding of the years of training that go into producing blown glass.
Each student is personally supervised and guided through the processes from start to finish by Will. Will has a wealth of teaching experience and has been filmed for television and featured in the press many times. He will talk about his work, his influences and glass making during the course of the day.
