This one-day course will introduce you to the use of wet folding for paper sculpture and manipulation. This is a more advanced technique, so it is essential to have attended a beginners/intermediate course so that you have the basics in place. All materials provided.
For those who already have some experience who want to develop their skills.
By the end of the course you will have at least two pieces to demonstrate your new skills in kiln formed glass. From this course you could progress to more advanced glass courses, interior design work or sculptural work.
