Class Description

Prerequisite: Good experience in glass fusing.

Students will explore creating colour and texture with glass powder and build several gallery-quality pieces from components during this 5-day kiln-formed glass workshop.

This intensive five-day workshop explores new ways to approach glass design, composition, and the colour palette with glass powders. The "colour" part involves understanding chemical reactions and blending powders to achieve unique and reproducible colours. The "component" part involves producing & working with many forms of powder wafers. The "crackle" part involves learning how to create three different expressions of the crackle texture.

Participants complete a collection of finished bowls and/or tiles. The bowls are finished using grinding, polishing, and sandblasting techniques. Comprehensive course notes are provided.

Teacher - Bob Leatherbarrow, glass artist.
