Program for the exhibition of Inwald – The story of a glasswork
On the trail of Prague’s Inwald glassworks
School teachers themselves select the subject of a guided tour and artistic reflection in Portheimka Glass Museum’s studios.
An expert guided tour of the Inwald – the Story of a Glassworks exhibition focused on the surface structure and design of Inwald’s glass products. Students make sketches of the details of the cut, engraved and pressed glass featured in the exhibition. This is followed by the creation of a structured frottage-style drawing in our studios, with students creating imprints of engraved, cut and pressed glass.
The unbreakability of fragile glass
A guided tour of the Inwald – the Story of a Glassworks exhibition with an emphasis on the “Duritka” glass phenomenon. Students make sketches of “Květa” glasses on display in the exhibition. In the studio, we will also seek to find out whether modern outlets such as IKEA have derived inspiration from this form of pressed glassware. The glasses will also serve as inspiration for us in creating an artistic redesign.
On the trail of Inwald glassworks
A guided tour of the Inwald – the Story of a Glassworks exhibition emphasising historical connotations, and enabling visitors to familiarise themselves with the location and the products made by Inwald. This will be followed by a decoration-themed studio workshop (painting and drawing on glass) and engraving. Each participant will take home a custom created glass.
