Glassblower: Experiences & Production Assistant Required
Short-term contract until December 23rd, 2021. However, it is possible the contract may become permanent in 2022. Assistance towards finding suitable short-term accommodation is available.
The company is seeking to appoint a glassblower to deliver hands-on glassblowing ‘Experiences’ to the public. This mainly consists of one-on-one bauble and paperweight workshops, with occasional longer workshops. The programme was shelved during the pandemic but with UK tourism projected to bounce back this year we wish to resume it in June/July. In 2020 the Glassblowing Experiences programme was placed as one of the top three, ‘Best Experiences of the Year’ by Cumbria Tourism Awards.
Depending on experience, and demand for bookings, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to assist our full-time production blowers.
This post is ideal for a glass-blower, or recent graduate, with a sound glassmaking foundation and the confidence to deliver experiences, who wishes to refine their skills. Cumbria Crystal is the only ‘luxury’ lead crystal manufacturer in the UK and as such offers the opportunity to really experience the processes & techniques used in a true production environment.
