Take your pattern making in glass up a level…. to two layers!!
In this 5-day class Ian Chadwick will explore with you the potential of arrangement and use of transparent colours to produce intriguing geometric patterns within two layers. Using Bullseye stringers, the participants will be shown the principles of accurate stringer arrangement. The class will then explore the potential of cutting and arranging geometric components and the transformative effects of layering transparent linear pattern.
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.
You will create a panel and a drop through vase. As well as glass cutting guidance your will also learn about cold-working and the process of rim removal with Silicon Carbide.
