About the Course

This is a technical workshop aimed at giving you new creative skills with glass. You will learn a number of different ways of creating texture in your work and create samples for each of these methods.

You will work with clear glass, coloured glass, frits and powders. You will learn about techniques to put texture into the surface of your work, how to put texture into the underside of your work, how to create bubbles within your work in specific shapes. You will create your own cornichons which you will then be able to use decorate your surfaces. You will create samples to be fired at different temperatures to see how temperature affects the surface of the glass. You will also work with creating texture with crushed glass on the surface and the placing of glass in specific places on the surface.

You will finish by making a larger completed piece to which you can apply the knowledge that you have learned.
