We are so excited to welcome Paul Messink as one of our 2017 Glass Master workshops. His work is amazing!
DATES: October 6-9, 2017
4 Day workshop, $795
TIME: 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
TOTAL SPOTS: 12
All tools, supplies, firings, lunches included.
In this 4-day workshop, students will learn how to apply enamel to glass layers, and then stack and fuse these layers into solid panels. Topics covered include design and image selection, layout, discussion of enamels and how they respond to fusing temperatures, painting medium, how to mix and apply enamels, fusing schedules, bubble control, kiln loading instructions,
and finishing techniques.
Although drawing and painting experience is helpful, it is not required. Prior fusing experience is required, however. Students will complete several initial exercises, plus 2 additional projects during this class, and are encouraged to choose and bring to the class printed images for compositions they would like to use for these projects.
Important image selection guidelines will be
provided prior to class.
