Hot Glass Sculpture Techniques Course

This course is aimed at students who want to explore merging fused glass with hot glass techniques, giving fusers an opportunity to blow or sculpt some of their pieces of work in the hotshop. A fun, colourful two days will be spent fusing, blowing, forming, scuplting and learning new techniques which can be applied to both areas of working. No previous glassblowing experience is required, just enthusiasm and open minds! Be ready to make vases with fused panels, tumblers from fused stacks and pull murrine, or make your own stringers, with a bit of blowing eggshell too to make your own glass confetti!

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.

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).
