The Big Picture: Survey of Kiln-glass
This workshop will provide an introduction to the many practices known as “kiln-glass.” As a student, you will learn basic kilnforming concepts through discussions, demonstrations, slideshows, and working directly with materials. During hands-on work time, you will practice glass cutting and then make a number of projects that will explore fusing, slumping, painting with glass, kilncasting, coldworking, and firing to various temperatures. At the end of the class, you will take home sample tiles, two finished plates, a relief casting, and an understanding of the many directions you can go with kiln-glass, either by experimenting in your own home studio or advancing to our more focused workshops. No prerequisites.
