This week long course suitable for beginners will show you how to create a range of beautiful cast glass pieces.
You will be supported to make work that is important to you, whether your inspiration comes from the land or the sea or your family history. The course will cover using clay and wax to create form and texture, an introduction to mould making and cold working.
You will learn how to make small intricate cast glass pieces, how to make and fire an open cast mould and how to do lost wax casting. The final day of the course will introduce you to the technique of pâte de verre. An ideal opportunity to experiment, learn new things and enjoy the making process.
