This course has been designed for those with existing experience in Glass; who wish to extend and build upon existing skills both creative and technical. Take the opportunity to develop your design skills alongside the application of varying glass techniques through negotiated self-directed projects. You are to work independently in the workshop with guidance from an expert glass tutor; the course is project-based allowing you to focus on personal interests and directions; projects are devised in consultation with your tutor and may include a range of expanded kiln forming techniques including fusing and slumping, fuse-to-cast techniques alongside cold-working processes. Emphasis is placed on visual research including artist reference alongside design development to expand and translate ideas into glass.
