Event description

Description

*** Ticket bookings go live on Tuesday 29 May at 8pm. Due to the popularity of the workshops we can only allow two Festival of Stuff workshop bookings per person. ***

In this masterclass, participants will be introduced to the history and current developments in this remarkable material and invited to experiment with basic fusing, cutting, decorating and assembling techniques. We will use a microwave kiln to create jewellery and other small objects. We will cut and decorate mirrored and flat glass tiles and participants will be invited to bring their own glass jars, tumblers and plates to decorate with etched and coloured patterns.

Dr Shelley James trained in textiles and printmaking before completing a PhD by practice in the Ceramics and Glass Department at the Royal College of Art. Her practice combines traditional approaches with the development of new techniques to explore the creative potential of glass. Shelley has an on-going residency at the Bristol Eye Hospital and has recently completed the prestigious Jerwood Commission in collaboration with psychologists and crystallographers to explore perception of space and symmetry. She is currently developing a new body of work to celebrate the discovery of chiral symmetry by Louis Pasteur for a series of workshops at Somerset House and the Gordon Museum.

This workshop is part of the Festival of Stuff.
