About the Course
Sand casting in glass is a very creative and exciting experience. This Glass casting day is for absolute first timers and experienced artists alike. Each person will design and make three glass pieces during the day which they can take away after a three day cooling process in a kiln.
The morning is spent designing and creating sand molds using forms, shapes and colours with the opportunity to add metals. After lunch we use the alchemy of molten glass at 1150 degrees from the furnace.
The liquid glass is poured into the moulds to create amazing and unique glass art works. inclusions of colours and metals, leafs can be added between the layers. The resulting glass pieces are always amazing and surprising. This is a very rare opportunity to try an exciting and creative glass craft
This is a very unique and exciting course brought together by two professional artists with highly unique experiences and workshop facilities.

It is a good plan to arrive with a few ideas ready. Then talk to ths artists Jon and Ewa for clever tips and thoughts on how to get your desired results.
The last time I attended this course I was a beginner to sand casting and I thouroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The results of my casts were amazing! Lots of creative fun was had by us all. I am just about to book in again and I cannot wait.
