ONE DAY FURTHER GLASS FUSING
with Helga Watkins-Baker
 
Glass Fusing Experiments
 
COURSE OUTLINE:
An opportunity to explore some exciting new techniques in fusing and slumping, including crackle fusing, flexi-glass medium, working with fossil vitra and drop-out slumping. We will focus on individual techniques to extend our skills in fusing, as well as evaluating how to achieve professional fused glass compositions as we develop new creative directions.

TUTOR PROFILE - JESSICA CLIFFORD
Jessica Clifford studied for a BA in Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University. She spent her degree expanding her experience of glass and practised many technical processes such as fusing, slumping, casting, drop moulds, cold working and also kiln programming. Her inspiration comes from nature, more specifically the sea and life within the sea. Her current work is inspired by her upbringing on the south coast, the natural colours or textures, which start with line drawings from life, and are then incorporated into her glass work. Jess also sells handmade fused dichroic jewellery through her business cliffordjessglass. Jess is currently the glass intern at The Glass Hub.

TUTOR PROFILE - HELGA WATKINS-BAKER:
Helga originally trained in architectural stained glass, undertook postgraduate studies in kiln techniques for glass at Central St. Martin’s College, London, and an MA in Glass at Wolverhampton, specialising in kiln forming. She was chairperson of the Contemporary Glass Society from 2004-8, and was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre. Her glass work is an interpretation of ideas concerning nature, time, and the energy of natural forces and elements, such as air, water, light. She has worked in glass education for a number of years, and in 2010 published Kiln Forming Glass an in-depth guide to kiln processes for glass. She is co-director of The Glass Hub.

IMPORTANT! Due to the cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for students to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to cool slowly in our kilns and may be collected at a later time by arrangement or carefully packaged and posted to you for £20 (Our cost, no more).
