London Craft Week 2016

03.05.16 - 07.05.16

As part of London Craft Week 2016, London Glassblowing is delighted to welcome back renegade demo team, The Bandits of Glass, for another full-throttle day on Saturday May 7. Between 11am-4pm simply turn up and take in the action as the Midlands-based collective demonstrate their surreal take on the medium. From the most audacious cup of tea you’ll ever see, through to mind-bending fish bowls, The Bandits offer an absurd, funny, and hugely entertaining day not to be missed!

Our planned demonstrations are as follows:

  • Tuesday 3rd, 2pm: Peter Layton with Elliot Walker & Tim Rawlinson create an experimental new piece. Simultaneously on our second bench, we will demonstrate a brand new Peter Layton work: Klimt Landscape.
  • Wednesday 4th, 2pm: Layne Rowe & Elliot Walker both creating their own work.
  • Thursday 5th, 2pm: Bruce Marks demonstrating how he creates his Giraffe Head pieces.
  • Friday 6th, 2pm: Hanne Enemark & Louis Thompson demonstrate one of their collaborative works.
  • Saturday 7th, 11am – 4pm: The Bandits of Glass will demonstrate throughout the day.

We are a working studio, so if you can only visit in the morning between Tuesday-Friday, you will still be able to watch the the artists at work.

Please note that seating will be allocated on a first-come basis.

Entry to the studio and gallery is free of charge. Click here to plan your visit.
