Glass artist David Traub is holding his Saturday workshops in 2021: Introduction to Kiln Glass.
- David will demonstrate the basics of fusing, slumping, using coloured glass pieces, powders and frits and kiln firing.
- This one-day experience is intended to give you the ability, knowledge and confidence to experiment with these processes on your own. The workshop is suitable for those with no or little prior glass experience.
You'll make a coloured glass tile, two slumped glass bowls and glass brooches. The cost of the workshop covers all materials.
For more information or to book a workshop, phone David on 021 113 7970 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to contact David if you'd like to arrange a glass workshop (usually a minimum of 3 people) outside of the advertised dates.
Born and brought up in New York, David Traub gained his Masters degree in London and Stourbridge in England before emigrating to New Zealand in 1995 to head the Glass programmes at Wanganui Polytechnic.
David’s passion for glass has spanned a career that has seen his work exhibited and selected for numerous national and international publications. He’s an expert on the history of contemporary glass; knowledge he enjoys sharing as much in Whanganui as in England when a visiting lecturer for Sotheby’s in London.
David now works from his studio in Whanganui where he continues his love of teaching small workshops.
