Class Description

Many inspirational artists such as Alicia Lomné and Deborah Horrell use pâte de verre and Bullseye glass to create stunning works. The literal translation of pâte de verre means ‘paste of glass’, the technique involves hand packing layers of frit and powders into a mould.
 
Learn how to create and pack moulds with glass frit to create beautiful unique works of art which look delicate and fragile but are surprisingly strong. We will cover appropriate mould making methods and mould types suitable for pâte de verre, as well as technical aspects of firing to achieve different results. Learn how to use powders and fine frit to play with different surface pattern, design, colour and textures. Explore the different tools and techniques used especially for pâte de verre.
 
This class is suitable for those who wish to make sculptural pieces. Some casting experience is helpful but not essential.
 

Teacher - Claire Hall, professional jewellery designer maker.

Fantastic 2 days with Claire taking us step by step through the processes involved. Lots to cover and she allowed plenty of time for each to create with superb support. Cannot wait to see finished products.
