David Barry leads this fast paced, two-day masterclass on Venetian style stemware. The course aims to provide an understanding of the technique used to blow delicate, thin-walled goblets. You will be taught how to use optic moulds, to create blown stems and blown feet, as well as working efficiently as a team. With demonstrations and plenty of hands-on learning, this course will push your glassmaking to new limits. Suitable for intermediate to advanced glassmakers only.
Beginning his glass career at the age of 19, Barry has become one of the most skilled glassmakers in the UK. Working professionally as a production glass blower, he is the gaffer at Bristol Blue Glass. Barry specialises in both English and Venetian stemware and is highly skilled in the ‘Massello’ technique of hot glass sculpture.
