Contemporary Production of Students and Teachers from Nový Bor Glass School
The exhibition dedicated to glass making will present the Nový Bor Glass School as the cradle of Czech glassmaking which began in Nový Bor (previously Haida) in 1763. They built a Piarist school for children of local glassmakers and glass traders there which continues to operate. Being the only school in the Czech Republic, it joins all three levels of glass education: apprentices, secondary schoolchildren, and upper secondary students, teaching them the complete technology of glass production and refining.
Practical workshops and public programmes will be part of the exhibition, enabling visitors to try out various glassmaking techniques such as glass blowing, glass painting, glass engraving, and stained glass making. In addition to a great experience, visitors will take away a self-made object.
