The Glass Workshop
at the School of Art in Canberra has established an extremely successful and
regular visiting artist program as part of its curriculum. Each semester an
established glass artist, generally from overseas, comes into our Workshop
for three weeks where, with the assistance of our students, they can pursue
their work, provide critiques and feed-back and enjoy the Canberra Glass Workshop
culture. Recent visiting aritsts include, Jaromir Rybak from the Czech Republic, Dante Marioni from Seattle and Proctor Fellow Mark Zirpel from the US.
Current student Bernadette Foster caught up with Mel George, past sudent and visiting artist to the Glass Workshop.
