The Large Glass department has a strong and unique position within the conceptual approach to glass as a sculptural material in contemporary art. Challenging the traditions of studio glass, we would sooner consider our work to be part of the fine art tradition. The students work independently on individual projects. They are accompanied by their regular teachers and an alternating group of guest lecturers. Students have classes in ‘Reading and Writing’, philosophy, drawing, spatial thinking and the techniques of glassmaking.
