Q. Information about glassmaking in Victorian England
Good morning! I am writing a novel that is set in Victorian England, and I would like one of my characters to be a glass-maker. I did want to incorporate glass-blowing, but is it more likely the glass would be blown or pressed? What would their workshop look like, and where might it be located? What would they have worn to work in? During the Victorian era, would women work there or even know the craft? Would someone have learned this art/craft through their family, apprenticeship, or on-the-job training? Thank you so much for your help!
