Participants will learn how to capture imagery in fused glass. We will explore pattern and illustration through a variety of methods, including: layering, silkscreening, drawing, painting, sifting and stenciling. The workshop will focus on the unique capacities of fused glass to create distinct designs, vibrant colors and depth of imagery.
This two day workshop is open to all levels of experience. Beginners will appreciate the experience of making their first pieces of glass art, experienced artists will learn new creative techniques applicable to other media, and experienced glass makers will expand their range of skills. We will focus on experimenting with new processes, and will also provide time for creating a finished piece of glass art.
