Glass – Fall One-Week Session
September 19-25, 2021
Anime and Aesop in Glass
Students in this workshop will learn, practice, and perfect techniques to create precise imagery on stained glass resulting in a finished, multicolored 16 x 16 inch stained glass window plus many samples. We’ll explore anime figures and Aesop fable illustrations as possible inspiration, but students are encouraged to bring and share their own references. Each student will design and create an elaborate window using painting, airbrushing (using an atomizer), pen-and-ink, and sandblasting techniques. Enamel paints will be applied to the glass surface and then fired in a kiln. The final work will be copper-foiled and soldered together. No glass cutting, soldering, or expert painting/drawing experience needed; we’ll be tracing found images. All levels.
