2-DAY INTRODUCTION CLASS GLASSBLOWING AND SANDCASTING
With Gert Bullée on the 25th and 26th of May 2013

During this 2-day introduction course students will learn the basic techniques for both glassblowing and sandcasting. Students will get acquainted with 'hot' glass by training exercise: gathering glass on the blowpipe, blow a post, using a pontil, opening up the bubble, preparing the sand mould, the use of colours... During this workshop students get acquainted with the fascinating transformation of liquid glass into a chosen form.

Gert Bullée was born in the glass city of Leerdam. As a child he already dreamed about becoming a glassblower. At the age of 16 he realized this dream by starting at the Royal Leerdam Crystal factory where he got an education according to the old guilds from apprentice to master glassblower. He also followed master classes at Lybster (Scotland) and exchanged experience with Orrefors and Kosta Boda (SE) and Novy Bor and Nizor (CZ). Since 2009 he is working as a freelance artist in different glass studios such as Tetterode (NL), Vrij Glas (NL) and GLAZENHUIS (BE).
