To what extent can glass illuminate the art of architecture?
In this year’s SummerGlass Workshop, we will immerse ourselves in the most renown works of glass craft in Prague’s city centre and surroundings. We will put our hands to the task of working with glass and will meet some of the most celebrated Czech glassmakers and artists. Not only will we visit exquisite glass collections in museums, we will see the art of glassmaking throughout the city — for instance in the Prague metro or at the New Stage of the National Theatre.
Our freshly charged understanding will be put to use to make our own glass designs. The wide array of colours, shapes, textures, sizes and opacities offer a nearly unlimited possibility for the imagination — from display cases to stained glass windows, glass bricks and lenses to textured glass panels, and whole interiors to details.
Enjoy this unique opportunity to delve into the depths of this craft for which the Czech Republic is internationally acclaimed.
