This one-day workshop is an exciting opportunity for you to further explore the design possibilities of designing and creating glass vases, candle votives and candy dishes using stainless steel and ceramic molds.   You will be excited to see how the heat from the kiln causes the glass to flow downward, outward and inward.

 

Experiment using a glass grinder, wet belt sander and ring saw to create unique glass design edges --- also referred to as "coldworking."  Use enamels, glass paints and frit to accent your pieces.

 

Note:  You will need to pickup your piece the next day or have it mailed to you.  Vases, votives and dishes of this size require additional firing and overnight annealing.

 

Materials included:  All supplies and equipment, including glass.


Workshop hours:  10:00 am to 4:00 pm (CST)

It presents an opportunity for you to further explore the design possibilities designing with fusible glass.


Learn to cut circles, emboss in hot molten glass, rubberstamp designs onto glass, etch and create your own stencil designs for sandblasting onto glass.  Each of the techniques mentioned will be accomplished using dichroic, irridescent and fusible art glass.

This workshop will be completed in one day.  All glass, equipment and tools are included in the workshop fee.

"CREATE YOUR OWN WORKSHOP"
 



Designs by Sylvanye Glass Studio
offers students an opportunity to create their own workshop with the techniques they want to learn. 

Workshops created by students consist of techniques that can be accomplished in one to three days.  Generally the third day is set aside for the student to pick up their design and to discuss firing results.

To calculate how many days your workshop will take use the formula below:

Formula:  1 day equals 3 points and each technique is assigned a point factor.  Techniques requiring 2 days of firing (combination firing such as fusing & slumping) time equals 3 points unless you use your own kiln to finalize the process.

Example:  A student wants to learn the following techniques which will equal 1 day.

   (1) Five techniques for creating holes in glass = 1.5 points
        (Student will create holes in pre-fused glass using 5 different techniques)

   (2) Cold fusing dichroic & art glass = 1.5 points

       (Student will create several glass pendants out of dichroic and art glass using the
         
cold fusing method which includes a lot of coldworking techniques).

Below is a list of intermediate and advanced kiln-formed glass techniques available for you choose from in creating your own workshop.  If there is a technique you would like to learn that is not listed below, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    1.  Create dichroic & iridescent glass jewelry = 2 points
    2.  Create unique designs with frit and glass powders = 2 points
    3.  Sandblast, etch and stencil on glass = 2 points
    4.  Metal emboss fantastic designs in hot molten glass = 1 point
    5.  Slump & drape a vase & candy dish with molds = 2 points
    6.  Fuse decorative inclusions such as copper, silver, etc. into glass = 1 point
    7.  Use 5 different techniques for creating holes in glass = 1.5 points
    8.  Fuse designs into glass with glass & ceramic decals = 1 point
    9.  Create beautiful frozen glass jewelry = 2.0 points
   10. Create & fire PMC or Art Clay Silver pendants in a microwave kiln = 1.5 points
   11. Enamel copper in the microwave or conventional glass kiln = 1 or 2 points
   12. Create Glass Clay Jewelry = 1 point
   13. Cold fuse dichroic and art glass to create pendants = 1.5 points
   14. Create pot melt designs with hot dripping glass = 2 points
   15. Create unique one-of-kind pattern bars = 2 points
   16. Learn to cut circles & rims to fuse & slump circular designs = 3 points
   17. Create a wall sconce or glass lampshade = 2 points
   18. Design & create your own stencils for sandblasting & etching = 1.5 points
   19. Fuse any photo into glass in sepia tone = 2 points
