NARRATING GLASS SKILLS MET JAMES MASKREY
This 5 day course (4 days to work in the hot shop + 1 day to finish off) will help students develop a range of hot glass skills and aims to cultivate a narrative for their pieces.
Using a combination of traditional glass skills and introducing the concept of incorporating new technologies, this workshop will aim to produce a body of works for contemplation. Found objects and pre-fabricated glass components may be incorporated, but the heart of the course will be concentrating on the technical process, be it colour techniques or the pursuit of form and pinpoint how we might use this to create work with meaning.
Arrive with some ideas for development or a completely blank canvas, the decision is yours, but think about technical processes you may want to learn. Bring plenty of energy and drive, a good sense of humour and a sunny disposition and we will see where it takes us.
