During the workshop we will shed new light on the glass objects of everyday use that are familiar to you. You will explore their optical qualities, discover the potential that lies within them. You will then design and compose an original sculptural form that can be used as a lampshade. Glass will regain its value from your creativity, and you will make your glass sculpture which will brighten up your house in the coming autumn.
