Holiday open studio day/Christmas sale
11th December 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
We will conduct ongoing narrated demonstrations of glassblowing, allowing the public to watch this process and ask questions, and offer a range of samples, prototypes and studio seconds for sale at discounted prices. All ages are welcome and no prior registration is required.
Glassblowing is a fascinating process involving constant activity as the molten glass is shaped by tools, gravity and centrifugal force and visitors are able to see a simple functional object made from start to finish in about 15 minutes. Glassblowing is part of the industrial heritage of Ireland that has all but disappeared, and the demonstrations offer a way to experience this rarely-seen activity in a safe, relaxed setting.
Social distancing will be observed and all visitors are encouraged to wear a face covering and use the available sanitising products.
