On this course we will focus on the use of small elements to make fused glass pieces. Working with sheet glass we will create pattern bar, which will be fused and cut. We will also work with the vitrigraph to create pulled coloured cane to be used in our fused pieces.

An opportunity to explore the fossil vitra method, as well as stencil techniques, to create interesting new effects in fusing. We will use prepared organic objects such as leaves to explore powder application, as well as stencils to create imagery, developing new ways of creating 'fossil' like effects and natural forms in our fused glass pieces.

There is a great freedom in the 'one off'. The practice of a maker need not involve producing multiples of one thing. This course is aimed at embracing a spontaneous approach to the initial modelling process through looking at ways to be creative with materials and taking a more spontaneous view of cold working.

From linoleum cuts to decals, this four-day course will cover surface decoration and printing techniques using both mediums, as well as kiln-forming techniques from fusing and slumping to basic mould-making. The techniques covered and individual responses will be assessed in light of their great potential for both architectural and sculptural glass work.
