Explore Glass Course - Students Work
above: students' glass-blown pieces.
Explore Glass offers a great introduction to the various methods of creating with glass from hot glassblowing where you will manipulate beautiful molten glass straight from the furnace; fusing, where you will create your own designs using flat glass pieces that are then fused together in the kiln; and lampworking with a torch flame to create bead forms. All this plus open casting and sand casting demonstrations. You will be able to take some of your glass creations home at the end of the day, others will need to be collected at a later date or posted on to you as they will take some time to be fired or to cool down.
A busy fun packed day for those who are ready and willing to become addicted to this amazing material. Suitable for beginners.
KT uses hot glass as her chosen artistic material and is passionate about the process as well as the product, using traditional techniques and merging them into contemporary styling - producing unique and graphic imagery. Her creations investigate the fluidity and possibilities of glass in its liquid form. KT has travelled and worked in many glass factories and studios throughout Europe, including Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg, Lino Tagliapietra and Dale Chihuly. She was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre, but has more recently worked with glassblower Sonja Klingler. KT is a co-director of Minimelt Glass, producing small mobile glass blowing furnaces, and co-director of The Glass Hub.

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.
