This course will introduce you to Pâte de Verre; a fascinating, ancient glass-making process where finely crushed glass is used to create colourful glassware. Over the course of three morning sessions you will make your model and refractory mould; carve/draw into the surface cavity to create your bas-relief design and, using glass powders, frits and glue binders, thin layers of glass paste will be packed into the mould and fired in the kiln to create your own thin walled glass vessel.
Karen Akester is an artist based in Edinburgh. She studied glass making at Edinburgh University-College of Art completing a Masters of Design in Glass in 2002. Exhibiting both locally and internationally, her work is held in private and public collections, most notably The National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh; Northlands Creative, Caithness. Her work is an exploration of narrative sculpture, using a range of materials from glass, metal and paper. She has been invited to teach workshops at Northlands Creative, Caithness; Bild-Werk, Frauenau in Bavaria Germany, Bezalel Academy Jerusalem and Edinburgh University-College of Art, Glass Department.
Saturdays, 7, 14 and 21 March 2020, 10-1pm, £180 (£162)
