STUDIES IN POWDER

COLOUR, COMPONENTS, AND CRACKLE

 

LEVEL: Introductory

PREREQUISITES: None

COST: $975 CAD (includes all instruction, materials, workshop notes, and daily homemade lunches)

DATES: No workshops scheduled at this time

This is an intensive five-day workshop that explores new ways to approach glass design, composition, and the powder colour palette. The "colour" part involves understanding chemical reactions and blending powders to achieve reproducible colours. The "component" part involves producing and working with many forms of powder wafers. The "crackle" part involves learning how to create three different expressions of the crackle texture.  Participants complete up to seven small (5-inch) gallery-quality bowls, and many test strips and tiles. The bowls are finished using grinding, polishing, and sandblasting techniques. A comprehensive set of course notes is provided.
