Glass Courses at the Glass Hub
 
DROP OUTS
with Jessica Clifford
 
COURSE OUTLINE:
Extend your kiln forming experience and discover how to create vessels using the 'Drop-Out' technique. We will work with pre-fused blanks to explore the specialist construction and firing techniques as we fire a ‘drop-out’, as well as producing our own colourful fused blank to take home and fire. We will cover cutting, assembly, inclusions, kiln firing and slumping. We will also look at finishing techniques. A great way to develop new ideas and skills. Some prior experience with glass fusing is required for this course.
 
TUTOR PROFILE - JESS CLIFFORD
Jessica Clifford studied for a BA in Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University. She spent her degree expanding her experience of glass and practised many technical processes such as fusing, slumping, casting, drop moulds, cold working and also kiln programming. Her inspiration comes from nature, more specifically the sea and life within the sea. Her current work is inspired by her upbringing on the south coast, the natural colours or textures, which start with line drawings from life, and are then incorporated into her glass work. Jess also sells handmade fused dichroic jewellery through her business cliffordjessglass.

IMPORTANT! Due to the cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for students to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to cool slowly in our kilns and may be collected at a later time by arrangement or carefully packaged and posted to you for £20 (Our cost, no more).
