Class Length: 9 Days – Kiln Casting – Price: £1275
The language of glass relies heavily on light and in the location of Caithness light is of a magical quality and lends itself uniquely to inspire the artist to create. Using the expansive skies and landscape for inspiration, we will explore the techniques of making glass using the lost wax technique. Students will develop their work from idea to object in appropriate ways to them. Whilst students will be taught broad ranging processes, they will also learn to tailor these processes to their individual ideas and ways of working. Various mould-making techniques, technical instruction and finishing processes will also be taught on the course.
Class Level: Intermediate – This class will require students to have prior kiln casting experience.
