Glassblowing Course

We offer a glassblowing course for UZH researchers and technicians every Spring and Fall Semester. If there is space in the course, other employees of UZH and ETH or other public institutions may also attend. The course is given in 12 sessions of 1.5 hours

and covers the properties of glass and its potential applications in the lab. Participants learn how to blow, cut, and grind simple instruments, as well as how to seal ampules under vacuum. Wherever possible, we also address your specific requests and needs. A contribution of approx. CHF 150 to cover material costs applies.

Spring / Summer course is CANCELLED
