What happens in the workshop...

The next available dates for this optics glass workshop are... Saturday 30th May - 10.30am – 3.30pm (class full) Saturday 7th May - 10.30am - 3.30pm Friday 24th June - 10.30am – 3.30pm In this workshop we teach how to distort a linear pattern of stringers into a repeatable and intentional pattern. This technique utilises one the basic principles of kiln forming - using volume control and displacement to physically change the shape of lines creating an appearance similar to a graph of harmonic waves. Glass stringers are thin threads of fusible glass and are a valuable addition to the kiln artist’s library of materials. They are a perfect way to add an accent of colour, a crisp line or series of lines in various diameters to any fusing project. In this workshop we will learn how to fuse stringers and deliberately distort them to create unique patterns in our glass creations. In addition, we will learn about how the chemicals in glass can react together to add interest and patterns in the final fused creation. In the class you can create a 15cm x 15cm glass bowl A light sandwich lunch is provided with this class.
