This could by experimenting with fusing glass, slumping, using fibre board, decals and mouldmaking techniques or with a blended ceramic and glass technology bias. This is an ideal if you have previously been on a course or with some prior knowledge needing to refresh or if you want to develop your skills further your own creative practice.

You will have access to our dedicated glass workshop facilities where you can work sustainable with recycled glass, glass frits, confetti etc or construconstruct 3D with UV glues, use a grinder and finishing equipment.
