10am - 5pm
This intensive workshop will teach you to use glass powders to draw two dimensional imagery in glass. This is meant to be a ‘crossover’ course, joining elements of fine art and fine craft together. We will explore traditional ideas of drawing and using a very non-traditional approach; using glass to interpret line, value, contrast, texture, color, movement, gesture, narrative, and composition. IF you think you can’t draw, this class is for you! In addition to learning simple ‘tricks of the trade’ and improvised technical drawing skills, you’ll have the freedom and individual encouragement to experiment with ways to use glass to create drawn imagery that tell a story, evokes emotion, and expresses mood. Previous drawing experience is not necessary, but an open mind and some fusing experience is helpful. By the time you leave you will have gained a new awareness of the visual language that is possible with kiln-formed glass, as well as confidence in your ability to “see” as an artist. Additional topics to be covered: Kiln-formed cane and murrini, collage part sheets for sgraffito drawing, tool making, incorporating color, reactive glass, volume control, firing schedules, and finishing.
