Mon 7 February- 10:00 am - Fri 11 February- 4:30 pm£795.00
Build flexible, inflatable, and expandable fusings that are brought out of the kiln to be worked in three dimensions on this exciting five day course with Mathew Szosz. This class focusses on using the fusing kiln as a platform for the free-form shaping of warm glass. You will learn methods and techniques for assembling fusible structures in flat glass and then bring those structures to a working point from which they can be manipulated either inside or outside the kiln. You will also be encouraged to develop your own methods for manipulating warm glass, and for the construction and assembly of created parts in the hotshop.
This will expand your skill set and introduce new possibilities with radical new approaches to warm glassmaking.
