The Glass Orchestra has conducted many workshops over its history. Workshops were conducted for people of all ages and abilities, including deaf people who would feel the vibrations of the glass instruments. Even in the days when the bulk of the instruments were of more of the found type (see above photo), people have always been curious about the instruments and the sounds that they produced. This photo gives a good view of the Bubble Bowls, large Brandy Snifters and wineglasses mounted on the resonator boxes. The player is holding the Lepto Tootis the 1st. All the instruments and performers sit on rugs that have an underpad underneath them. The rug and underpad were not too soft - this was good in that it didn't damp the ringing of certain instruments, this was not good in that after a 90 minute performance a players bottom could get sore.
