Glass Beadmaking - introduction to working with hot glass

Su 3rd and Su 10th October 2021


taught by JanHein van Stiphout.

This workshop serves as an introduction to working with hot glass through bead making. To make glass beads, the glass is heated at a torch to over 1000°C. This makes the special experience of working with liquid glass accessible to everyone. How pliable is liquid glass? What is the effect of transparent vs. opaque glass? How can this technique be extended to applications other than bead making?

Topics include:
- Making round, conical and cylinder shaped beads.
- Building up a disc.
- Making and using stringers and twisters.
- Placing dots and raking glass.
- Making flowers and using murrini’s.

Hands-on practice will be supported by the necessary theory. This workshop aims to teach skills rather than being focused on producing specific products. It’s intended for beginners.

Workshop hours: from 10:00 – 17:00 (registration is only possible for both days)

Costs: EUR 200.00 (includes materials and the use of necessary tools, lunch and taxes)

Location: Stipglas, Utrechtsestraat 6,Tilburg (The Netherlands)

Training glasfusing techniek

Working with borosilicate glass

taught by Jörg Hanowski (D).

Sa 28th and Su 29th November 2020

Working with borosilicate glass is a completely different experience from working with soft glass. And working with tubes instead of rods is also completely different. You’ll have the opportunity to be exposed to both in this workshop. Under Jörg Hanowski’s expert guidance, you’ll make 3-D fantasy figures using borosilicate tubes. The level of difficulty will depend on your own experience and your progress during the workshop. Because of the individual coaching this workshop is open to all levels from beginners through advanced. There’s room for maximum 8 students and we’ll work on oxygen torches (with O2 tanks!).

Though trained as a technical glassblower, Jörg Hanowski has predominantly made his name in the art world. With his glass objects, including also neon installations, he’s pulled in numerous international glass awards. And further he regularly creates glass works for colleague-artists.

Workshop hours: Sa 20th Nov 11.00 - 18.00 hrs and Su 29th Nov 10:00 - 17:00 hrs.

Level: From 0 (brandertechniek).

Costs: EUR 250,-, including use of torches / ovens and tools, a basic amount of glass and materials, annealing costs, lunch and taxes but excluding special glass.
