Open Glass Casting
Open Kiln Casting
with Helga Watkins-Baker

An opportunity to work with mould making to create simple but striking cast glass pieces, fired in the kiln. We will work on plaster based positives placed in the bottom of a refractory 'box' to create reverse relief effects in the glass. Glass is fired so that it flows over the forms and create a solid cast block. A deceptively easy way to work with the casting technique or to develop new ideas.

2-Day Kiln Casting

This is a superb introduction to 3D glass forming techniques in the kiln and working with moulds to create unique and personal cast glass pieces. You will work with a variety of materials to make impressions and models ready for casting. Beginning with the simple “open cast” method, you will progress onto the “lost wax” method. Come and explore kiln-forming glass under the expert tuition of Helga Watkins-Baker.
