What you will learn

This advanced course at Morley College, North Kensington Centre, is ideal for those wishing to increase both glass technical and design skills, as well as develop a more professional approach. You will screen print using traditional glass paints and enamels building up layers to create stunning one-off works of art, which will be kiln-fired onto the glass making something that will last for years to come. Whilst working on own and group projects you will be encouraged to experiment with different methods of making, extend techniques, and develop personal work and visual identity through individual guidance and support. New and returning students work alongside each other in a mutually supportive environment in which you will learn both from your tutor and each other.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • You will further develop chosen making skills in a range of glass techniques in Kiln formed glass as well as architectural glass working in 2D and 3D projects.
  • You will learn to discuss and question appropriate techniques and materials in order to develop individual project work
  • Develop an awareness of historical and contemporary approaches in glass


  • Full fee
  • Concession fee
  • Class format and activities

    You will work independently to design and make kiln-formed glass forms using a range of design and technical skills. You will practice and develop both skill and creativity through personal project work, with guidance from your tutor. Teaching takes place in a practical workshop setting, including both presentation, discussion and demonstration. Informal assessment will take place on a continual basis throughout the course using observation, and a group Learner presentation at the end of the course outlining the development of individual projects.
