If you fancy progressing your glass skills, then this one day class might be for you!
 
Im inviting participants to help me use up my piles of scrap tekta by casting it into an open face mould. You can create your mould from any small object, piece of textile, or you can create something entirely unique with clay! Once cast your mould will be packed with your chosen glass frits and off-cuts and fired in the kiln. The following week you will divest (remove the plaster) and give your masterpiece a quick clean up before taking it home.
 
Some glass experience preferred
