ONE-DAY KILN CASTING
with Helga Watkins-Baker
 
Kiln Casting Glass course - Mouldmaking
 
COURSE OUTLINE:

An opportunity to work with moulds to create simple but striking cast glass pieces, fired in the kiln. We will work on modelling using various materials to provide form, and then explore mould recipes. Removing the model from the mould, we will fill the moulds with glass ready to fire in the kiln. A great introduction to mould making and kiln casting techniques, or to work on new ideas.

 
TUTOR PROFILE - HELGA WATKINS-BAKER:
Helga originally trained in architectural stained glass, undertook postgraduate studies in kiln techniques for glass at Central St. Martin’s College, London, and an MA in Glass at Wolverhampton, specialising in kiln forming. She was chairperson of the Contemporary Glass Society from 2004-8, and was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre. Her glass work is an interpretation of ideas concerning nature, time, and the energy of natural forces and elements, such as air, water, light. She has worked in glass education for a number of years, and in 2010 published Kiln Forming Glass an in-depth guide to kiln processes for glass. She is co-director of The Glass Hub.
