This one day a week Glass course provides students, who have achieved Level 2 or equivalent, with an opportunity to develop their design ideas and extend glass making skills. Projects will encourage confidence in the handling and understanding of materials, techniques and processes. Visual research and the development of original ideas are an important aspect of the course with the emphasis on producing work with a strong personal language. Presentation, and portfolio building skills, will help with progression to university or self-employment.
The course will require some independent research to be conducted outside of the taught course hours. Students pay for glass and other materials used and a studio fee is also charged for the year.
