"I am fascinated with the richness that results from pattern making and the color variations that are possible. There is a mathematical aspect to pattern making that appeals to my interest in structure and order." - Richard Parrish 

This new class by Richard Parrish, Beyond Tapestry, picks up where his highly popular Tapestry class left off. Working with similar parts sheets as those used for Tapestry, participants will explore several ways to cut and assemble strips and shapes to create rich patterns and visual texture to use in their own fused glass work.  

 The class will explore several approaches to pattern making, beginning with inspiration such as fiber/fabric (weaving, tapestry, bargello quilting, basketry, etc.)nature (plants, water, etc.); and mathematics and geometry (proportion, grids, lines, circles, etc.). 

 Workshop participants will make several sample pieces as they explore the vast potential of working with pattern sheets, including methods for cutting the sheet, on edge strip construction, thick layered blocks, and slumping and forming methods. Color, opacity and transparency will be considered also. Many of the techniques in this class can be adapted and used with other patterned glass.  

 Each person will develop her/his own patterns through sketching and mock-ups. Techniques will be explored and developed as needed to achieve these patterns including multiple firingscutting and reassembling; and coldworking and finishing.
