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 is ‘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, glass artist and professional jewellery designer.

This is a good pate de verre beginner course. I learnt enough to be confident to work alone with it.
