Course Outline

Explore advanced pattern making in glass with Ian Chadwick. Over five full days discover new techniques in advanced pattern forming in fused glass using pre-formed Bullseye glass stringer sheets. You will expand your knowledge and experience of kiln-forming and cold-working techniques to produce stunning mandala-like designs utilising symmetry and geometry.

Master glass artist Ian Chadwick will guide you through the process of creating Bullseye glass 'stringer sheets' which, once fired will be deconstructed and reassembled. Learn how the arrangement of tone and colour can enhance the optical properties of your design and how to lay out pattern using principles of four-fold and eight-fold symmetry. A unique opportunity to work with Ian's concepts and techniques to create your own glass designs.

Janet - Ian Chadwick Masterclass

Ian Chadwick has a background in sculpture and stained-glass window design, disciplines which he applies to his constantly evolving range of kiln-formed glass art. Glass as a medium is inspirational due to its abilities to transform light. The glass Ian produces is all created within a kiln. The kiln-forming technique of working glass involves constructing and deconstructing of glass elements to produce the end result. It is a deliberate, laborious technique where the glass is worked in its cold state and the end product is achieved by applying precision and patience.

Ian’s current range of work is deeply concerned with pattern building. Small pieces of coloured glass are arranged and melted in a kiln to produce a sheet of kaleidoscopic, coloured glass which is then formed to the desired shape. This work embodies Ian’s interest in the esoteric art of sacred geometry, commonly found in the rose windows of cathedrals and the mandalas of eastern religious lore.
