September 17, 2018 - September 21, 2018

Buy Tickets

Cost £720

Marina Hanser will lead a class dedicated to exploring non-traditional methods of mark making in kiln-formed glass to help each artist find their individual voice. The 5-day workshop will introduce a variety of techniques including kiln-forming, kiln-casting, pate de verre and cold working as well as ways to use them to create personal marks, textures and surface finishes. We will use clay, polystyrene, chicken wire, plaster, cloth, paper, wax, sand, found objects and other yet to be discovered materials to explore mark-making techniques directly in glass and in molds.

The class will introduce cold working techniques such as sawing, carving, engraving, grinding and other surface finishes. In order to explore transparency, translucency and opacity we will use the full range of glass products available including billets, sheet glass, frit, powders and glass paint. Expect to expand both on your technical and conceptual skills through daily demonstrations, discussions and presentations.
