Course Outline

Take your pattern making in glass up a level!

Master advanced pattern making in fused glass In this intensive 5-day workshop with renowned glass artist Ian Chadwick. You will explore the potential in the arrangement of transparent colours to produce intriguing geometric patterns within two layers. Using Bullseye stringers, learn how to cut and arrange geometric components accurately, layering transparent linear patterns to create exciting, transformative effects.

Participants should ideally be of an intermediate level, accurate hand cutting of glass is fundamental to this class, although techniques to improve your cutting, and ultimately your confidence, will be covered. Ian will guide you through the whole process and you will create a fused glass panel and a drop through vase. As well as glass cutting guidance, Ian will offer instruction on the cold-working process of rim removal with Silicon Carbide.

"Wow, what a great course! Thank you Glass Hub, Ian, and all of you for being such a supportive group."

Janet - Ian Chadwick Masterclass

Course Tutor - Ian Chadwick

Ian Chadwick is an internationally recognised Kiln-formed glass artist. Winner of the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers Award at the British Glass Biennale 2019. Ian’s background is in fine art sculpture and stained-glass window design, disciplines which apply to his constantly evolving range of kiln-formed glass art.

Ian has an interest in geometry, and in particular the history and philosophy behind the geometric symbols known as mandalas. This interest is realised in Ian’s glass work where a ritualised process of making is employed to bring the essence of mandalas into the symmetrical glass patterns which have become his unique signature aesthetic.

“The glass I produce uses rotational symmetry as its fundamental design tool. Symmetry is used by man and nature as a device to add continuity, balance and harmony to a chaotic universe, its use in art and design, consequently, attains an aesthetic of order and familiarity.”
