Make-Up: The Hot Glass Process

Why do we make the things we make? How do we make them? Are there things we would rather make? Can we make those? Do we make with meaning? These are the questions we will ask ourselves along with quenching our thirst to ‘make things better’.

The aim of this short workshop is to both expand and refine our glassmaking skills. We will achieve this by predominantly developing our repertoire of hot glass techniques through demonstration, instruction and supported making. Our aim is to enrich our objects with technical ability, and to search for some meaning in our work.

We will concentrate on material, process and idea. Using and developing traditional and contemporary glass-blowing skills, compiled materials and our combined imaginations we will work together to create new artefacts.

We will aim to push ourselves through evolving our glass techniques and developing original ideas to produce pieces of work embracing both skill and narrative.
