Experience hot glass casting during this introduction to the exciting and very direct method of creating your own solid sculptural forms, textures and impressions in glass. No experience required. Continuing students are welcome.
During the course students will be introduced to:
- How to prepare sand moulds
- How to create simple cast forms, textures and impression in sand moulds
- How to add coloured powders and inclusions
- How to pour hot glass into sand mould.
Things to bring and ideas for the course:
Students can bring in their own objects (approx. 13 cm or smaller) to press/imprint into the sand moulds (e.g. man-made forms, military metals, nautical objects, antique jewellery or organic materials, bark, leaves, pebbles, rocks). Objects will be removed prior to casting and not be harmed.
I really enjoyed my time here, it was really fun to make sand casts, would love to come back soon!
