To familiarize our trainees not only with the pleasure but also plenty of practice in the art of glass finishing, at Derix Glasstudios we organized a project week for our trainees early in the year in mid-January. The project was led by our experienced instructors Kerstin Grimm (responsible for the glaziers) and Bärbel Gottschling-Djahandoust (responsible for the glass finishers). On different days, the total of nine trainees, comprising four glass finishers and five glaziers were able to tackle the work themselves and immerse themselves in the world of glass finishing. Under the supervision of the two instructors, the participants – equipped with protective clothing and the appropriate tools – were able to experiment with technical methods such as screen printing, airbrush guns and stencils or glass bonding and tackle stimulating tasks involved in glass finishing. All the trainees engaged in the program with great enthusiasm, keen interest and fun.
