IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE SECRETS OF GLASSMAKING, ITS COMPOSITION, PROPERTIES, SKILLS & TECHNIQUES.
The Origins of glass
Natural glass was probably first discovered by chance around 5000 BC on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. At the boundary between science and technology, and art and design, glass continues to be an innovative material which offers humankind a vast range of properties and applications.
Glass has considerably changed our daily lives. Its transparency, capacity to take colour, plasticity and hardness make it a multipurpose material.
Behind all the many possibilities that glass offers are an unseen multitude of skills, techniques, tools, furnaces and machines which have continuously evolved over the centuries.
