Wednesday- Friday, September 27-29
10-5 each day
3-day workshop. Tuition $895.00; includes materials and use of tools. Previous drawing or glass experience is not required, but an open mind and some fusing knowledge is helpful.
Space is limited; tuition must be paid in advance to reserve your space in a class.
Popular glass instructor Kelly Crosser-Alge returns to Weisser to teach the use of glass frits and powders to draw two-dimensional imagery in glass!
This is meant to be a crossover course, joining elements of fine art and fine craft together. Students will explore traditional ideas of drawing, as well as the use of a very non-traditional approach; using glass to interpret line, value, contrast, texture, color, movement, gesture, narrative, and composition. Forget your misconception of “I can’t draw”- this class will change your mind as Kelly guides you through her process of developing imagery in a single firing!
In addition to learning simple tricks of the trade and improvised technical drawing skills, students will have the freedom and individual encouragement to experiment with using glass to create drawn imagery that tell a story, evokes emotion, and expresses mood. Other topics and processes covered in the workshop will include kiln-formed canes and murrine, use of non-traditional and inexpensive tools, incorporating color, reactive glass, volume control, firing schedules, and finishing. By the time you leave class, you will have gained a new awareness of the visual language that is possible with kiln-formed glass, as well as confidence to see and express yourself as an artist.
