Dream Garden Volume 2 - SEA GARDEN

Note:  All supplies to complete the projects in this video are listed below this description box.  Tools/Equipment and supply links for this technique are also listed in the info tabs directly to the right of this description tab.

In Volume 2 Nancy takes you through all the steps to create a fantasy underwater garden teaming with sea life. In this video lesson students will learn methods of layering imagery through multiple firings and building depth while learning processes for creating elements that will be used to create the imagery. Students will learn new techniques not covered in part one as well as learn new variations of some methods contained in part one. Techniques taught include frit making (how and why), crafting pattern sheets with frit and stringer, creating patterned vitrograph stringer, cane and manipulated elements, enameled bits, making torchworked pieces for adding detail to your design, and strategies for eliminating coldworking and devitrification.  Beyond building a sea garden project the lessons taught will open your eyes to methods and techniques that can be applied to a multitude of kiln projects.  As an added bonus throughout the lessons you will learn the language of artistry, including topics like color selection, contrast and composition without being overwhelmed by these basic concepts. Nancy will encourage you to trust your instincts, use your curiosity and work in an improvisational way leading you to become a more creative maker.

Techniques include:

  1. Fantastic class I loved review by Melissa Coates on 10/30/2018

    I was looking forward to taking this video classe so much that I purchased it before it was ready. I wanted to tell you it was worth it. I loved this video classes Dream Garden Sea Garden. After viewing this video I decided to purchase Dream Garden volume one. I am so glad that I did purchase it, because you need the combined knowledge of both videos to receive the full benefit. You can take what you learned and create your own scenic peices. I want to use what I have learned to create a desert landscapes scene.
