Darrington Crystal

Over the summer term holidays ive booked a workshop that allows me to have a go at glassblowing a glass drinking vessel. Given the dangers and the price of the process the majority of facilities that can hold and use these processes are situated in America but there are a few in the uk that are sole traders and producers in this process. Glassblowing is a process that interests me mainly because once you’ve got a vast amount of experience under your belt the limits you can achieve are only limited to whether the material will allow you to and whether it will withstand it.

I’m looking forward to what the experience will hold and whether I make a success or muck of it i’ll be able to see what it is like on a daily basis for those that work as glassblowers.
