Glass appreciation – an introduction to glass - April 2018. Photo credit – Matej Kastelic / Shutterstock.comLeading glass specialists, Glass Technology Services Ltd, are delivering another one-day introduction to glass course in Sheffield, UK, on 24 April 2018 following popular demand.

This one-day course introduces delegates to glass manufacture and processing, glass properties, environmental, recycling and quality considerations and includes hands-on practical sessions on melting and the inspection of glass items.

The course is delivered in an informative, interactive, format by leading specialists in their respective fields. Key topics from manufacture, processing and fundamental chemistry to glass properties, defects and failure are covered in an accessible format - making this an ideal introduction for anyone working in glass or dealing with glass products or issues.

Places are strictly limited in order to encourage an informal atmosphere, increased levels of interaction and participation and enable hands-on practical sessions. This format allows the sessions to cover issues specific to delegates’ own work scenarios and experiences and enable full question and answers for the benefit of all attendees.

For further information, or to book, please visit the British Glass website.

In-house and bespoke courses on glass topics are available for individual organisations and associations from Glass Technology Services Ltd, but these regular glass appreciation courses are being arranged and coordinated by British Glass on behalf of their members and the wider glass supply chain.
