Education/training

The Glass Hub

The Glass Hub is an educational centre based in South West England where students of all abilities can learn and develop the craft of glassmaking. At The Glass Hub we provide extensive glass-working facilities alongside the support of an excellent, highly qualified and experienced team of tutors to foster individual creative growth and expertise. We offer short courses, masterclasses, longer termly technique-focused classes, and studio/equipment hire. See www.theglasshub.co.uk

The Glass Hub is a glass school aimed at providing courses which develop and foster glass skills, run by KT Yun and Helga Watkins-Baker. They both have many years of teaching practice, KT worked with glassblower Sonja Klingler and more recently developed Minimelt glass, mini furnaces and studio equipment for small scale and domestic glass blowing. Helga wrote ‘Kiln Forming Glass’, a comprehensive guide to warm glass processes and glass casting, and was Chairperson of the CGS from 2004-8. They brought their skills and experience together to create The Glass Hub, a glass school which is focused on creativity and expertise, dedicated to keeping glass skills alive.
