Sat 11 September- 10:00 am - Fri 17 September- 4:30 pm£975
"Form: ...by which shape is determined, as distinguished from the material of which it is composed, giving it individuality and a distinctive character".
The aim of this 7-day class led by artist and master craftsman Karl Harron is to achieve a "sublime form". While negotiating the technical challenges of deep-slumping into three-step ceramic moulds, students will be encouraged to develop their aesthetic and conceptual perspective, rather than just mastering a technique. Students will further challenge themselves by designing the piece using only two colours of reactive opalescent sheet glass, with mark-making realized through the application of frit, powder, confetti and stringer. This is not a beginners course but don't be put off by the term "master class". If you are comfortable handling glass and wish to expand your knowledge and understanding of the material then please apply.
Discussions; Powerpoint presentations by all and technical talks will encourage and enable students to expand their ideas once outside the classroom. This is not a beginners course, but please don't be put off by the term "Masterclass". The participants on this course will need to have a level of experience which will allow them to get the most out of the course.
