An in-depth foundation course covering the principle glassmaking techniques in both the hot shop and the kiln room. Over 10 weeks you will spend equal time in these two areas of glass forming, namely five days each with glassblowing and kiln forming techniques, alongside gaining knowledge and experience in glass properties in general.

Over three days you will explore principles of advanced pattern forming in fused glass. Using pre-formed Bullseye glass stringer sheets, students will expand their knowledge and experience of kiln-forming and cold-working techniques to produce intricate patterns which utilise symmetry and geometry to create hypnotising mandala-like patterns.

Create movement in kiln cast glass as veils and streaks of colour. Well known for her beautiful use of colour in cast sculpture, Fiaz will encourage students to experiment and find their own personal expressions. An inventive and experimental course, exploring mould-making techniques, colour manipulations and cold-working.

Discover the art of fusing glass and explore a variety of techniques to create your own designs in glass. You will learn the fundamentals of glass cutting, assembly, inclusions, kiln firing and slumping under the expert guidance of the Glass Hub Tutors. A great introduction for beginners or artists working in other mediums to experiment with this art form.

Create 3d sculptures using hot glass manipulation with traditional fusing techniques as a base. The emphasis will be on experimentation and is suitable for intermediate to advanced students who can embrace failure as being part of the learning curve in testing the limits of glass fusing.
£595.00 / SOLD OUT
Explore a variety of kiln techniques such as reactive fusing, iridescent fusing, deep fusing and other exciting ways of manipulating glass in the kiln. We will also look at slumping including drop out moulds, pot melts, as well as exploring open-faced moulds, creating form and texture for casting glass.

A three-day introductory course, offering students the opportunity to expand their kiln-forming skill-set through a new and exciting pattern-making process for glass. This course will also provide opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of approaches to colour, and challenge your ideas about design for glass and how to anticipate how glass will move in the kiln in relation to negative space and kiln furniture.

Models and moulds often open-up new ways of seeing work, and avenues for future exploration. Over four days you will explore the use of collage and paper sculpting techniques to create original relief models, focussing on form and textural qualities, then develop your moulds which will hold and shape the glass in the kiln.

Explore the potential of pattern bar or ‘murrine’ techniques to make highly detailed elements for fusing into larger projects, or for smaller jewellery components. Striking patterns and effects can be achieved with this deceptively simple technique.
£150.00 / Places Left: 4
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.

Extend your kiln forming experience and discover how to create vessels using the 'Drop-Out' technique. We will cover cutting, assembly, inclusions, kiln firing and slumping. We will also look at finishing techniques. A great way to develop new ideas and skills. Some prior experience with glass fusing is required for this course.
