The Glass-Blowers

You have an ideal view of the glassmakers’ platform, and can observe our craftsmen in their rhythmical working activity. Find out for yourselves what craftsmanlike skill it takes to form glass out of the glowing mass, blow it, and cast it. Our glassmakers come from Portugal and Italy. They work from 9.30-13.00 and from 13.30-17.00, Saturday from 9.30-12.30 and from 13.00-16.00. In the old days we used to train apprentices at the glass works. Now you have to go abroad for an apprenticeship – at places like the Glass Technical College in Zwiesel, Germany.
