The ancient art of glassblowing is one of the many diverse experiences offered to students through our pioneering Deep Learning programme.
This is a trailblazing programme, designed to encourage independence, motivation, enjoyment and depth in student learning, and helped ICHK to win a place in Cambridge Strategies’ list of the top 100 schools in the world for innovation.
The glassblowing unit offers students first-hand experience at a local glass studio where they learn to gather, shape and inflate molten glass. They learn about the science and history of the material as well as how it is used in contemporary art and craft practices.
They have a wonderful opportunity to learn from glass artists, and design and produce a one-of-a-kind piece of art, just like the drinking glasses pictured here.
