Sand, Fire, Glass, Sea: A Creative Writing & Glassmaking Workshop
About the event
Join glass artist Andrea Spencer and author Bernie McGill for the Sand, Fire, Glass, Sea: a Creative Writing & Glassmaking Workshop. This half-day workshop will take inspiration from the landscape of the North Coast.
Following introductions and a short writing exercise, participants will alternate in two groups between a creative writing session and a glass-making session, during which time there will be a break for lunch (please bring your own packed lunch).
At the end of the creative writing and glassmaking workshops, you will have created a piece of creative writing and flameworked glass, ending the session with a sharing of work.
No previous experience is necessary.
About the artists:
Andrea Spencer maintains a studio in rural Ballintoy on the North Antrim Coast. Her work is inspired by nature, drawing on natural forms and structures to create pieces which correlate with aspects of the human condition.
Bernie McGill’s most recent short story collection, “This Train is For”, was published in June 2022 by No Alibis Press. Her novel “The Watch House” was nominated in 2019 for the Ireland/European Union Prize for Literature.
Presented as part of Causeway Craft Trail Showcase and August Craft Month.
