Glass Techniques – Holiday Workshop
This intensive four-day Glass Techniques Holiday Workshop will introduce you to kiln-formed glass techniques and other related processes. Samples will be made and a personal project completed during the week. It will also give experienced students the time to further develop their skills and should enable them to complete a complex work. There will be individual support throughout the week on a one-to-one basis within the group. The specialist studio is well equipped and all tools are provided. Material costs will be kept as low as possible and depend on individual projects. Float glass will be provided; those wishing to use more specialist glass should budget between £5-15.
What topics are covered?
There will be a short introduction to the recent history of glass as a material. The Tutor will then show examples and give explanations of the techniques and processes that can be covered during this course. Beginners will gain core skills by making a small mosaic panel, giving an understanding of using specialist tools and equipment in a safe working environment. The students can then choose the techniques they want to explore for the rest of the week and start making tests and developing design ideas towards the projects.

How will I learn?

The teaching is a combination of presentation to the group and predominately one to one working alongside individual students. It is fully appreciated that each student will establish their own style and pace of learning and have different expectations for the outcomes of the course.
Are there any additional costs?
All tools, specialist equipment, sandblasting and kiln firing costs will be provided throughout the week. Materials for the first mosaic and for tests and samples will also be given. Final projects needing fusing glass or lead and solder can be bought from the college shop. A reasonable price to allow for a 40x40cms panel or 30x30cms fused bowl would be between £8-£12.
