This one day course will introduce you to two hot glass techniques which you can use to make components to enhance the creativity of your fused glass pieces.

Vitrigraph

Learn the technique of making your own stringers, canes and interesting components from extruding hot glass directly from the kiln. Students will team up in pairs and discover how to set up glass in the crucible before placing it in the vitrograph kiln. Students will go home with a variety of components to use on their own projects.

Raking (also known as combing)

An interesting technique that adds another dimension to your work. Participants will make a 200mm x 200mm fused slab that will be raked during the course of the day. They can be collected the following week after they have been annealed. The finished slab can be used as central component for a larger future work.
