Event description

Description

This comprehensive workshop will teach you the basics of the Murrini glass technique. Learn to cut and stack glass to create basic pixelated imagery or patterns. Stretched in the hotshop, the glass is then cut into cross section tiles, fused into a panel and rolled into a basic form.

Murrini glass making is an ancient art dating back to around 1st century in Egypt and then revived by Venetian Master Glassmakers in the 16th century. In this course, age old tradition is combined with contemporary processes to achieve exciting results.

Murrini Madness is a four day course, this workshop runs over two weekends as you build your Murrini designs and then take them into the hot shop.

22 & 23 June + 29 & 30 June weekends.

+ Participation in a previous glassblowing course, or equivalent, is necessary.
