This biennial festival provides a rare opportunity to witness the seemingly magical processes of transformation of the astonishing substance we call glass. Watching how artistically and precisely the glass can be shaped when held to a flame is a fascinating spectacle for both young and old alike. A wide range of demonstrations are presented, where artists reveal many of the refinements and intricacies of different techniques used in the fashioning of glass.
Two kinds of demonstration can be reserved for the weekend. The first type is arranged together with the organisers, and is held in a designated place, offering a good view to a large number of spectators. The second type of demonstration is put on by stall-holders at their own stand
