A Masterclass of Disorderly Inquiry, Kit Paulson
Dates: 25th February – 3rd March 2022 (7 days)
Starting with basic borosilicate flameworking techniques, this class will focus on building structures in solid glass. Using a kiln shelf and working directly from scale drawings, students will learn to construct complex forms from small motifs. Beginners welcome, students can expect to learn the fundamentals of borosilicate flameworking as well as techniques more specific to this method of building. Bring grand ideas, a pencil, a drawing compass and expect to learn through demos, illustrated hand-outs, slide shows and hands on practice.
