Students will work on their own work and learn to make glass objects via wax models, silicon mould-making, kiln mould-making. Lots of fun and a great class environment. Glass costs extra. Lou Pendergrast-Mathieson is a practising glass artist based in Auckland. She has been glass casting for over 20 years, and currently works out of her studio at Mairangi Art Centre, where she also runs a successful crystal glass class. She exhibits widely in New Zealand and overseas. Teaching is something Lou enjoys because students bring with them a wide variety of skills and life experiences to the class, which enhances her own practice. She also loves to share her knowledge and skills with others, and enjoys getting others to experience such a unique material. Glass is not only a beautiful, tactile material but it also plays with transparency and light.
