Speakers: Ellie Burton and Katherine Austin
Title: Pursuing a Passion for Glass
About the event: Ellie and Katherine graduated together from de Montfort University in 2017. They will relate their experiences in getting started making glass professionally. “Ever since the first induction into the hot glass workshop, I have fallen in love with the material,” says Ellie. “I am fascinated by the fluidity of hot glass and the control required to work with it. I particularly enjoy allowing the material to dictate the form of the pieces in a natural way. I also find the effect colour can have on the form of a piece extremely interesting.” Come and share this passion for glass at our special event this Valentine’s weekend.
