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

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.

She was chairperson of the Contemporary Glass Society from 2004-8, and was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre.
