The audience thrilled to the spectacle of seeing the glassmaking demonstration, assisted by Tim Harris, in the studio of Isle of Wight Studio Glass – located next door to the museum.
The piece will be on display at the museum shortly and will feature as the centrepiece of the museum’s International Year of Glass Exhibition in 2022.
Anton Doroszenko, Museum Director, says:
“The event programme was a first for us, and included a live-stream via Zoom.
“We’re delighted with the feedback we’ve received, and we’ll be posting video highlights online of the storyteller’s art.”
Isle of Wight Glass Museum, located at Arreton Barns, celebrates the design and craftsmanship of glass makers based on the Island, as well as those in some way connected to the Island, past and present. There are over 1,200 pieces on show across 2 galleries.
The next Special Event will be Pursuing a Passion for Glass, on Sunday 13th February 2022 at 10:30. More information can be found at www.isleofwightglassmuseum.org.uk/events.
