CREATIVE GLASSWARE SANDBLASTING WORKSHOP

When: Saturday 20 October 10:30am 

(or book for 1:30PM session)

Cost: $95 per ticket

Have you ever wanted to own a personalised pair of drinking glasses? Join glass artists Jo Bone and Aaron Micallef as they guide you through the processes of stenciling, masking and sandblasting, to design and create your own matching glassware. You will be shown how to realise your design as a permanently etched and durable image on the glass surface. Select a pair of tumblers or wine glasses and personalise them for yourself, or as a gift for a friend. Jo and Aaron will bring their portable sandblaster, an item of studio equipment employed by many glass artists to achieve texture, fine details and surface finishes on their work.

Join us for this fun workshop - an adventurous foray into the world of creative glass design and manufacturing!

  • All equipment, including sandblaster
  • Basic safety gear provided
  • Selection of quality glassware, two items provided per ticket (option to buy more on the day)

 What to bring:

  • Closed shoes
  • Extra cash in case you would like to purchase and decorate additional glasses (if time allows)
  • Ideas / drawings for inspiration (optional)
  • About Jo and Aaron:

    Jo Bone and Aaron Micallef have collaborated in hot glass and shared studio space in Brisbane since 2012. In addition to their mutual passion for the medium of glass, they possess shared and complementary aesthetic approaches revolving around pattern, symmetry and intricacy in the natural world.

    Jo Bone is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London and one of Queensland’s foremost glass artists, having worked in the medium for nearly 20 years. Jo’s work is held in prominent national and international collections and she is known for her commissions delivering unique glass trophy and award pieces.

    Aaron Micallef has an established career in science, but has developed a close relationship with glass developing experience in both the UK and Australia. His hot glass practice is complemented by photography, reinterpreting glass through the dual lenses of the camera and patterns observed in nature.
