Explore glass as a medium and create a beautiful 8"x10" crystal iridescent glass leaves tealight, a perfect centerpiece for any table or gift for someone special!
In the first session of this kiln cast glass sculpture workshop, you will fill leaf-shaped molds with individual mosaic sized frit glass pieces. The colors of glass can be any combination of iridized clear crystal, ebony black, or champagne gold. The molds are then loaded into the glass kiln for a first firing. In the second session you will unload the glass leaves from the kiln, smooth the edges with a wet glass sander, and position them back into the kiln to be slump shaped. After a second firing, your tealight will be ready to take home!
This is a beginning level course. No experience is necessary. The basics of kiln casting and vocabulary terms will be presented, and students who complete the class will be eligible to participate in next-level glass classes with the instructor. All supplies are included. Please wear close toe shoes and long pants in the glass studios.
This workshop is taught by renowned glass artist, Mary Van Cline, and takes place at Glass-Studio.US, located in the New Kamilche area. Mary will email exact directions to all registered students prior to the start of the course. Your finished tealight can be picked up at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, the week after the course ends, during any of our Ceramics Open Studio hours: Sundays (9am-noon), Mondays (6-9pm), and Thursdays (2-5pm).
