Unfortunately, for the time being we are unable to run our popular glassblowing sessions. At present we don’t know when we will be able to start our courses again. This is because the social distancing issues are still paramount.
Realistically, I don’t think it is likely that we will be able to begin teaching again until a vaccine, or satisfactory treatment is available. If social distancing is reduced to less than one metre, this could improve the situation.
Until now one of the features of the course has been that it is very “hands on”.
The way I teach glassblowing, there is some close contact between the tutor (me) and the student (you), because we are standing side by side for some of the time. We are handling the same glassblowing iron. This means that the risk is too high in the current climate.
I may be able to redesign the course so that it is less “hands-on”. We will announce this in due course if that becomes the best way to proceed. If you’ve already done a course with us, you would notice the difference. But if you haven’t, you wouldn’t. We’d still be looking to give you an outstanding experience. If you have a voucher or a booking already in the system, we are happy to extend these past the expiry date. If you would like any further information, please email us here
