Glass and Stone: Pocket Sculptures
Saturday, September 30 to Sunday, October 1, 2017
Instructor: Brad Walker
This workshop is based on processes taught by artist Weston Lambert, and is offered with his permission and blessing. In two busy days we'll cover the basics of combining diverse materials, with a focus on combining glass and stone to create small "pocket sculptures" that can be made quickly with basic coldworking tools and techniques.
You'll be able to bring and use your own stones or choose from the selection we'll have available. You'll also have a range of options for the glass to include, from previously made pieces to pieces we'll craft in the class. And best of all, you'll take home at least two pocket sculptures of your own.
No experience necessary, but a knowledge of basic coldworking and fusing processes is helpful.
Two days. Price: $350
10:00 to 4:30 first day, 10:00 to 3:00 second day
