BIG bowl, 1 session, $250
You can't really tell just how big this bowl is from the picture but it is B-I-G! Transform a 21 inch circle into a bowl aprox 18" in diameter by 6 inches deep. Several design options will be discussed but ultimately it will be your choice in what type of technique you want to utilize in making the bowl: strip cut glass, frit, concentric circle designs, murrini (already pulled), crossing glass layers to make new colors, etc. Class size very limited to ensure individual guidance.

Mixed Media Workshop, 1 session, $60
A fun filled creative adventure that does not involve glass (but is sure to inspire your next glass creation)! Work on two abstract mixed media pieces; layering, stamping, stenciling, and painting. I know I need a creative boost every now and then and mixed media usually does the trick for me. This relaxed workshop will include demonstrations and explanations for use of materials such as gesso, fluid acrylics, pastel sticks, etc. Participants will need to bring various size paint brushes, sponges or sponge pouncers and any stencils/stamps they may want to work with. The wood substrates, papers, paints, pastels, etc will be provided by Art Glass Array.

Reverse enameling on glass, two 1/2 days followed by one 2hr session, $250
A process by which black enamel is applied as a first layer, the layer is filled and removed via sgraffito (scratching to create designs), and then color is applied. To complete this technique in our specific time frame, we will be creating "positive/negative" style designs in which two halves illustrating 2 different approaches to reverse enameling, will fit to complete one aprox 12" piece. Designs provided in class or talk to AGA about bringing your own design.

Tie Dye Bowl, 1 session, $75
The fluid shape of this bowl is reminiscent of blown glass, yet it is made utilizing the heat of a kiln rather than in the fire of a blower’s furnace. By manipulating glass powders, create a blended “tie dye” appearance on the surface of the glass. At over 1400 degrees Fahrenheit, the powders will fuse into the base layer of clear glass. After annealing, the piece will be ready to shape in a separate stage firing in the kiln to complete a bowl aprox. 11” round by 4” deep.
Thursday March 8th 6:30-8:00pm
We LOVE glass, but we also enjoy working in other media. Sometimes I feel that trying something different makes me more inspired for my glasswork or I can even try the technique in a glass version. We've held a couple of private mixed media get togethers and they were so fun we decided to offer a few on select Friday nights! Workshop includes one piece unless noted. Yummy drinks included
Each workshop $25! Registration required (to make sure we have enough supplies)
