OPEN CASTING
with Helga Watkins-Baker
 
Open casting glass
 
COURSE OUTLINE

An opportunity to work with mould making 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 making. 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.

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).
