The Perfect Vessel - Masterclass with Karl Harron.
Saturday 7th. - Friday 13th. October 2017- 7 days (10:00 - 17:00).
The aim of this 7-day class led by Artist and Master Craftsman Karl Harron is to achieve a "sublime form". While negotiating the technical challenges of deep-slumping into three-step ceramic moulds, students will be encouraged to develop their aesthetic and conceptual perspective, rather than just mastering a technique.
Course Level: Intermediate - Advanced glass skills and kilnforming experience required.
Course Fee: £875.00 - Instalment plans possible - Please contact us.

Introduction To Venetian Cane Techniques - Masterclass with Scott Benefield.
Monday 16th. - Friday 20th. October 2017 - 5 days (10:00 – 16:30).
This five-day class will focus on cane techniques and functional objects. All of the basics of working with cane--pulling straight and twisted canes, and using them to form blown glass objects--will be covered, alongside a thoughtful approach to designing and making functional wares.
Course Level: Intermediate - Advanced.
Course Fee: £675.00.

Form To Fuse - Masterclass with Andrea Spencer.
Thursday 19th. - Friday 20th. October 2017 - 2 days (10:00 – 16:30).
This class explore the potential of using lampworking techniques to create elements that can be fused to the surface of sheet glass. We will investigate solid-sculpting, drawing, colour applications, carving/texturing and construction at the torch and then use these elements in combination with the effect of heat manipulation in the kiln.
Course Level: Intermediate.
Course Fee: £300.00.
