Pattern and Patina
June 9, 2019 – June 15, 2019
During this workshop students focus on stringer application and design, enhanced by surface patina through the application of metals to the glass in the form of powder, leaf and silver glass. In addition, you will be introduced to design methods and principles, and their sources of inspiration and applications for beads. Participants will explore the use of color, shape, texture, pattern and theme as well as ways of adding interest to their work such as carving, complex bead shapes, etching and special materials. Personal expression is encouraged. Bring your ideas! Intermediate skill level required with lamp work experience preferred.
COURSE FEE: $675
