Get creative and explore the potential of Upcycling Glass. Explore creative reuse; transforming wasteful, useless, or unwanted glass products into new glass forms of another quality with artistic value. Experiment with upcycling varying glass types through a transformation process of breaking, reassembling and reforming towards recreating fused and slumped glass. Our expert tutor will guide you through a range of essential glass forming techniques: you will be introduced to varying glass types for upcycling including bottle and window glasses, alongside ‘bring your own glass’; kiln-forming processes necessary for the handling, cutting and breaking of glass, together with specific construction processes for fusing and slumping techniques. This course is the perfect introduction for beginners, but also an opportunity for more advanced learners to experiment and explore with upcycling glass as a material within self-directed projects, as well as skill building.
