This three-day course will introduce you to the potential of Zircar; this ‘space-age’ mould material exhibits excellent surface reproduction with an optical finish. Molten glass can be poured directly into ‘light weight’ porous moulds with no need for “gating & venting”. You will have the opportunity to ladle glass straight from the furnace and pour into preheated sculptural moulds. This is the most ‘cutting edge’ mould method for hot-casting your own solid sculptural forms in glass. No experience required. Students come with: Participants will bring wax objects to use in the moulding process. Appropriate footwear is a must: leather boots preferred, leather shoes acceptable. LSC have rooms to rent at €25 per night.
