Glass workshops

| 0 comments

I would like to introduce everyone to a fun way to learn a new skill.
Make beautiful, unique art pieces. using the materials glass and various metals.
I run glass workshops where people can sit down, chat, and get creative together.

I have different kinds of glass art workshops available. Below I have written a description of each one and have included pictures of art pieces made by past participants.

This is the information about the mosaic workshop

In this workshop, you will learn how to score and cut glass and how to
combine and place different glass shapes to create your own special glass art piece.

We will use coloured glass pieces, and over clear glass, we will create
patterns of our own design. This process involves cutting glass, therefore all participants will be
wearing safety goggles, which will be provided.

Here are some pictures of this kind of work done in previous workshops:

 

This is the information about the metals and frit workshop

In these sessions we will be working with metal foil that will be cut
and scored, metal wires, which we will cut to size, bend and hammer.
To emphasize and enhance your design, we will use a variety of colours by using very
small chips of crushed coloured glass called frit.
They are fun to use and very versatile, you can use them for abstract or detailed work.

These sessions involve loud noises: hammering of metal wires on small
anvils. If you are sensitive to noise (and even if you aren’t ), you
may wish to bring ear plugs to wear while we are working. Safety goggles
will be provided.

This is the information about the metals workshop

In these sessions we will be working with metal foil that will be cut
and scored, metal wires, which we will cut to size, bend and hammer. We
will learn different techniques for working with wire to achieve
different effects and also how different metals combine, react together
and how that affects the result.

These sessions involve loud noises: hammering of metal wires on small
anvils. If you are sensitive to noise (and even if you aren’t ), you
may wish to bring ear plugs to wear while we are working. Safety goggles
will be provided.

Working with metals can give you the opportunity to create more detailed pieces.
