4-DAY WORKSHOP GLASS CASTING AND GLASS PRESSING WITH ELIZABETH KELLY (AUS)

During this unique workshop students design and make moulds for the casting and pressing of repetitive glass elements for sculptural and architectural applications.
Starting from expounding Elizabeth Kelly's work, subjects like types of glass and mould materials, production processes and modification techniques, as well as assembling, integrating and installation will be discussed.
Students will discover the possibilities of casting glass in open, multiple parts graphite moulds with surface structure and get to know the stamping and pressing of glass.
As a young adult, Elizabeth Kelly spent four years travelling extensively through Europe and Asia before commencing a two-year full-time factory traineeship in glassblowing in 1985 at the JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design Centre in Adelaide. Post training, she undertook studies at the Adelaide Centre for the ARTS, transferring to the Australian National University School of Art to complete a degree in Visual Art.

After her undergraduate degree, Kelly taught at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney and was a research assistant in coloured glass before undertaking a Master's degree in Visual Art with an Australian Post Graduate Award for research into chemistry of coloured glass, and with direct application in the field of sculpture in 1995.
Directly upon completion of her Master's degree in 1997, Kelly commenced a three-year contract as Head of Glass Workshop at the JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design Centre in Adelaide. During this period she travelled to Europe for an exhibition in Venice and to demonstrate as a master glassblower in Leerdam, Holland.
In 2000, Kelly travelled extensively through North America, Canada and Japan for further professional development. This included working in several private studios for short stints and also completing a fellowship at the Wheaton Village Creative Glass Centre of America.

In 2003, she initiated Studio Tangerine in Canberra, a purpose-built self-funded glass design and sculpture studio where she continues to work. In 2008, Kelly was invited as an Artist in Residence at the Seto City International Ceramic and Glass Centre in Japan.
