Transparent Thoughts – Fiaz Elson

Cast glass & cold working | All levels with some glass experience


This dynamic class will be focusing on  expressing your conceptual ideas in an experimental way within the cast glass, blown elements and coldworking techniques. We will look at shifting self-imposed boundaries and utilising new ways of expressing your ideas in colour, form, and structure as well as design and installation.
