Your host, Sydney Community College is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Learn how to make contemporary kiln fired glass platters in this fun Sydney workshop. At the end of class you will take home two to three beautifully crafted pieces.

This workshop is designed for beginners and students with some experience, as you will learn all the steps involved in designing and creating your own stunning glass platters and decorative objects.

The workshop, which is run by internationally renowned artist Kate Baker, will begin with an introduction to the world of contemporary kiln fired glass before going through hands-on demonstrations of glass cutting, design principles for fusing, construction and pattern making, slumping principles, mould preparation, kiln firing schedules and health and safety surrounding these practices. 

During the class you will be encouraged to cultivate your own ideas while learning a range of simple but effective techniques to ensure your creations are of the highest quality.

At the end of the class you will take home at least two to three finished pieces to adorn your environment and a wide array of new skills.

 

Venue

The class is held in Kates own studio – Studio 4, 4/2 Bolton Street, Sydenham, just across the road from the Sydneham train station. There’s plenty of onstreet parking available.

Parking directions:
There is all day street parking available outside the complex. There are two visitor parks inside the warehouse complex which are clearly marked as such and may be used on a ‘first served’ basis if available.
We ask that students kindly DO NOT park in any of the other parking spaces in the complex, including those outside No 4, as they are all in private use by other tenants.

Please note: This class requires a minimum number of students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform and fully refund you, so please watch your email/SMS 1 day prior to the class
