This course offers an opportunity for students to focus on specific glass working techniques through an intensive delivery and in-depth approach to skill acquisition and ideas development. Technical demonstrations, lectures and hands on classes introduce new techniques and thematic issues relevant to a glass practice. Each student's original exploration is supported through group discussions and tutorials. Students develop a short work proposal to frame their material investigation and highlight their growing understanding of the contextual and conceptual underpinnings of their projects. Workplace health and safety (WHS) instruction is integrated throughout the syllabus.
