Hot Glass Casting Into Zircar Moulds Workshop
Tutor: Keith Seybert. Duration: 3 Days. Participants: 6. Cost: €220
This three-day course will introduce you to the potential of Zircar; this 'space-age' mould material exhibits excellent surface reproduction with an optical finish. Molten glass can be poured directly into 'light weight' porous moulds with no need for "gating & venting". You will have the opportunity to ladle glass straight from the furnace and pour into preheated sculptural moulds. This is the most 'cutting edge' mould method for hot-casting your own solid sculptural forms in glass. We allow two or three small pieces per participant, each the size of a large cupcake! We like people to bring in a variety of objects, so that we can discuss different approaches, and we can decide on one or possibly two to proceed with. If you want to work only on one piece then we can facilitate that too, but it should be no bigger than the two or three cupcakes, and please let us know beforehand. That way  I can discuss with participants the parameters and limitations of the process; as well as the applications for bronze. Annealing will generally take two full days, so we will send the items back to you.
No experience required. Students come with: Participants will bring wax objects to use in the moulding process. Appropriate footwear is a must: leather boots preferred, leather shoes acceptable.  We have rooms to rent at €25 per night.
