The unit explores additional techniques such as mould blowing and hot sculpting, cold working and polishing skills such as lathe working. You will learn a range of different traditional methods as well as sustainable contemporary practice approaches. You will learn through series of directed and self-directed studio based assignments, and contextualise your ideas through the lens of contemporary global glass focused art and design practices. This unit is designed for students who have some previous experience in glassblowing.
