WEEKEND COURSES

These 2 or 3 day courses enable participants to get under the skin of a technique and learn about it through a series of projects. On a 2 day course the first weekend runs from 10-4pm, the work will then be fired during the week and the following Saturday will be used to divest and cold work as necessary.

On a 2 day course all the work will be created on the Saturday and Sunday, but you may be required to pick up the finished pieces during the following week.

Lost Wax Weekend

Come and learn about creating objects using a lost wax casting method. You will work with moulding wax to create your object and then cast it up in plaster. After steaming out the wax you will be able to work out how much glass you will need and the work will be ready to go into the kiln for firing. The following week the pieces will be ready for divestment and cold working. All the stages of this complex process will be explained and demonstrated throughout the weekend.

No previous experience with glass required
