About the course
Nearly all glass makers (unless they are blowing glass) need molds which can go in the kiln, as part of the process of creating their work.
This course aims to introduce all the mold-making techniques for casting glass, with detailed information on materials, recipes for mould mixes, methods and applications. It helps the student to learn which methods are appropriate for different types of work, and covers all the basics of how to make your mould. It also includes practical information on sourcing, storing, using and recycling materials, and how to develop your own recipes and methods for particular projects.
