This course will introduce you to the potential of molten glass as a creative material through the process of “Hot” casting into sand moulds. You will have the opportunity to ladle glass straight from the furnace and pour into prepared “open faced” sand moulds made with found and sculpted objects. This is the most direct method to create your own solid sculptural forms in glass. No previous glass working experience required and all materials are provided. Feel free to bring in your own objects to press in the sand. Appropriate footwear is a must: leather boots preferred, leather shoes acceptable; No open toed shoes or sandals! LSC have rooms to rent at €25 per night.
