A rather desperate note from our New Zealand cousins about the grim fate awaiting a wonderful and important glass course:
Raewyn Roberts here, we have an urgent problem and need help from all interested parties. I am hoping you will be able to help me as a someone interested in glass.
I am presently working with a collective of glass artists in
Wanganui, New Zealand. Our local tertiary institution, UCOL Whanganui, made a shock announcement this week to close the glass program. It is the only tertiary glass program in New Zealand and its closure will have a
disastrous impact on New Zealand glass.
