Courses for those interested in exploring working with glass will also offered by the Prince’s School in early 2018. The courses are taught by Genista Dunham, a 2015 graduate of The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts with a fine art background, having studied at the Slade. She is interested in both Christian and Pagan themes, particularly allegorical stories, as well as in the transformation from matter to spirit using images of the natural world: flora, fauna and particularly birds. In her work, in ceramics and glass, she continues to experiment with painting techniques and explorations of surface treatments.
