To be delivered on behalf of British Glass on 17 May, ‘Glass Appreciation’ introduces delegates to glass manufacture, processing, benefits, environmental and quality considerations, including practical sessions for melting and inspection.

Glass Technology Services often provide individual clients with bespoke training on specific topic areas or issues relevant to them, but also work in partnership with larger organisations and associations whose members and wider networks have a need for glass knowledge and expertise. In partnership with British Glass the ‘glass appreciation’ course is being made available for anyone wishing to learn more about this unique material.

The course is delivered in an informative, interactive, format by 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 otherwise dealing with glass products or issues.

Places are strictly limited in order to encourage an informal atmosphere, increased levels of interaction and participation, hands-on practical sessions and opportunities for delegates to focus on examples specific to their own areas of work and experience.

Whether delegates design, make, source, sell or reuse glass, this course will provide them with the understanding to improve their work with this complex material.
