Glass Casting and Digital Production | CEID 100

Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Continuing Studies, has partnered with Terminal City Glass Co-op on a new course that combines digital methods and traditional craft processes.

Cs Ceid Glass Casting

Glass Casting + Digital Production (CEID 100) introduces new ways of making to both professional artists and enthusiasts. Using 3D modelling for ideation and form generation, students will use analog mould-making and hot glass casting to produce their designs. The primary project will be a 3D printed form based on the discoveries of the initial project, translated into cast glass.

This course will provide a solid foundation in traditional skills and techniques as well as 3D modelling and 3D printing. Suitable for all skill levels, this course will especially benefit those who work in related disciplines, including architecture, ceramics, product design and sculpture. Students can continue their learning through a range of courses at both ECUAD and Terminal City Glass Co-op.
