Kilnformed glass workshop @ Archifest [5 October 2019]
For this 3-hour workshop we are pleased to present a special collaboration with Archifest 2019.
Create your very own kilnformed glass plate in a fully equipped glassmaking studio with a 33 year old heritage of glassmaking. At this workshop, learn the basics of glassworking, how to cut and polish glass, prepare your mold using special kiln materials, and assemble your creation in the kiln for firing. Tour the gallery thereafter for some refreshments and pick up a gift or two.
