Masterclass: Connected Forms, Flameworking – Zoe Garner

Drawing concepts and ideas from the movement of the material, you will explore the potential of flame worked Borosilicate (Pyrex) glass. Rods and tubes will be transformed, using gravity, centrifugal force, blowing and manipulation with tools into components that will then be connected to form assembled structures.

Masterclass: Colour Dropouts – Ruth Shelley

Have you ever wanted to re-create the colours that inspire you into glass but not sure where to start. Ruth Shelley will guide you through the Bullseye colour palette with demonstrations, practical hands-on experiments and discussion.

Masterclass: Venetian Stemware – Dave Barry

A fast paced masterclass on Venetian style glass stemware. The course aims to provide a grounding in the technique used to blow delicate, thin-walled goblets. You will be taught how to use optic moulds, to create blown stems and blown feet, as well as working efficiently as a team. With demonstrations and plenty of hands-on learning, this course will push your glassmaking to new limits.

Masterclass: Glass from Nature – Andrea Spencer

Take inspiration from nature on this three-day flameworking workshop. Using heat and gravity to manipulate glass in the flame you will learn methods and techniques to bend, stretch, sculpt and carve molten glass, creating sculptural objects, inspired by natural forms.

Masterclass: Collage for Kiln Casting – Georgia Redpath

From paper into glass - explore collage and paper sculpting techniques to create original relief models focussing on form and texture. You will then move on to mould-making techniques, using rubbers, and finally making the investment moulds which will hold and shape glass in the kiln.

Masterclass: Fusing doesn’t have to be flat – Nina Casson McGarva

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.
