Glass powder workshop

Last week I had a request for a workshop in using glass powders with the aim of creating a mini artist masterpiece. Marie had been unable to attend my masterclass when I ran it earlier in the summer so thought she’d see when I was doing another one. After comparing diaries it looked like she would have to wait nearly a month so we did the opposite and went for a matter of days after the phone call. It’s one of the advantages of having a teaching space at home that I can run a workshop whenever I like 🙂

Step one when working with glass powders is to learn how to apply it evenly and how to layer it without moving the colours you’ve put on already. Marie worked with some of my stencils to experiment with this and then created her own stencil to make a glass version of a painting she has hanging on her kitchen wall.

It will all go into the kiln within the next few days (I’ve got a bit of a backlog with all the recent workshops that need different firing schedules!) and as soon as its finished I’ll post a photo of it on here.

Woven glass bowl workshop

Weaving with glass looks seemingly impossible but with a few little lessons and tricks of the trade it’s not too difficult to achieve.
This morning I had a workshop teaching how to make a woven glass bowl like these.

Ann chose the most gorgeous, locate colour way with her design and I can’t wait to see how this fuses. We discussed the effect she wanted so its going to have a tack fuse to retain as much texture as possible and to make it look as close to the blue bowl I use as my sample piece.

This kiln is on every day at the moment as I’ve had so many workshops going on….tomorrow is Printing on Glass and Monday is all about Powders and Frits.
