Course Outline

Explore a range of techniques for manipulating glass in the kiln. Over three days you will try out fusing processes such as reactive fusing, iridescent fusing and deep fusing. We will also look at slumping, drop-out moulds, pot melts and open-faced moulds - creating form and texture in cast glass. Technical factors such as kiln firing, glass properties and in-depth discussion will be ongoing throughout the course. An intensive course of kiln activity, which will provide participants with a thorough grounding in kiln basics as well as more advanced techniques.
