Masterclass: Deep Slumped Forms – Karl Harron
Mon 19 September- 10:00 am - Fri 23 September- 4:30 pm£795.00
"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 five-day Masterclass is to achieve a sublime deep vessel form in kiln-cast glass. You will be encouraged to develop your aesthetic and conceptual perspective, rather than simply mastering the technique, while negotiating the technical challenges of deep-slumping into three-step ceramic moulds.
You will be using a pre-fired blank made of two colour reactive opalescent Bullseye sheet glass. Powerpoint presentations, technical talks and discussions will encourage and enable students to expand their ideas once outside the classroom.
This is not a beginners’ course but don't be put off by the term ‘masterclass’, If you are comfortable handling glass and wish to expand your knowledge and understanding of the material then this is an ideal opportunity to learn from a master glassmaker.
