Masterclass: Advanced Pattern Making in Glass – Ian Chadwick
Mon 17 May- 10:00 am - Fri 21 May- 4:30 pmFree
On this masterclass participants will explore principles of advanced pattern forming in fused glass. Using pre-formed Bullseye glass stringer sheets, students will expand their knowledge and experience of kiln-forming and cold-working techniques to produce intricate patterns which utilise symmetry and geometry to create hypnotising mandala-like patterns.
Participants will be guided through the creation of Bullseye glass stringer sheets which once fired will be deconstructed and reassembled. Participants will learn how the arrangement of tone and colour can enhance the optical properties of the pattern design and how to lay out the pattern using principles of four-fold and eight-fold symmetry. Students will utilise these concepts and techniques to create a glass tile of their own design.
