This is a unique opportunity to study with the artist in her studio by the sea. Take home a wealth of knowledge and a cast sculpture or two. Have an inspiring weekend getting the creative juices flowing. This 2 day workshop will take students on an intensive journey into the creative possibilities of kiln cast glass. Sallie will demystify the casting process by teaching you how to model and form positives in clay to make simple open moulds. The use of Gel-Flex rubber will also be demonstrated. This course will cater to all levels of ability.
