This two day workshop was designed to introduce participants to the process of glass casting. It was designed for beginners, although any skill level was accommodated – whether one wanted to brush up on established glass casting skills or use the workshop as a starting point for working with the beautiful material of glass.
The workshop focused on the mould making process for open-face glass casts, and the programming and set up of the kiln, as well as health and safety practices for working with glass. Included in this workshop were demonstrations of safely working with glass, the mould making process, clay sculpting, kiln setup and clean up, and mould divestment. Participants worked through a set project, articulating responses from concept, design to realisation.
