From Offcuts to Masterpieces with Erna Piechna

6-7 November 2017  (Monday/Tuesday)

 

Join this class and be inspired to turn your ever-accumulating pot of glass offcuts into a masterpiece.  Let’s face it, everybody has a pot or two of offcuts in their studio and this workshop will present a number of exciting techniques for melting them down to create brand new slabs of glass.  They will then be cut, either by hand or by diamond saw, and re-fused to create new and highly individual pieces of art.

 

The techniques covered in this 2 day class are:

 

‘Combing’ - working at the open kiln to create specific colour mixes and movements

‘Flower Pot’ and ‘Chicken Wire’ Melts - to obtain random colour patterns and striations

‘Casting’ – a small box work project

 

In the class we will work with Bullseye glass, but the methods used can also be applied to any other compatible ranges of glass.

 

Projects:       1 finished platter, 1 box cast, plus reference samples

Skill Level:    Beginner to intermediate
