Year 12 Art: Glass making workshop

Last term, Year 12 art students went to Court Street Gallery in Trowbridge to attend a workshop led by Alex Compton, a local ‘Glass Artist’.

 

The students brought their sketchbooks along as a source of inspiration as they had previously been set a personal theme for their coursework which could influence their outcomes in the workshop. They used some of the studies in their books as a form of inspiration and were then shown different ways they could work with and manipulate glass in order to create two free standing pieces of glass art.

 

Everyone enjoyed the workshop and learnt some new, exciting and rewarding techniques.

Take a look at their outcomes below…
