This course introduces kiln forming processes and cold finishing techniques in glass for design based outcomes. Course projects introduce thematic ideas interwoven with technical processes. Projects are aimed at developing student's ability to work the material and to reflect and develop design based responses to their working method. The course is designed to accommodate learning for students with different levels of experience. Lectures and group discussions assist students to locate their experimental methods within the broader field of craft, design and visual arts practice.
This is a topic-based course that alternates over two years (odd and even years). In odd years the class will introduce pâte de verre (paste of glass) techniques as well as slumping and cold working of glass. In even years this class will focus on deep and layered kiln forming techniques and cold working of glass.
Workplace health and safety (WHS) instruction is integrated throughout the syllabus.
