CLASS FULL

Time: 9am - 4pm

Class Fee: $579 (non-refundable), includes lab fees, lunch, snacks

Preserve an important article of clothing or fabric by creating a casting of it with glass, under the instruction of Lisa Becker. Participants will be guided through the entire creative process, beginning with preparing the fabric to the final steps of un-casting the dimensional piece. Two pieces will be made in the duration of the three day workshop, a positive casting of fabric and a smaller fragment study relief casting. Becker will also discuss various mold materials to use for this process and how they can be adapted to processes outside of fabric. 

This fun technique is great for preserving small clothing, such as baby clothes, or a favorite fabric purse, however it can damage the item used. Please take this into consideration when choosing your item to cast.

Palette Knife Painting with Glass


Instructor: Anne Nye

Dates: May 19th-21st, 2014

CLASS FULL

Time: 9am - 4pm (19th & 20th) 9am - 1pm (21st)

Class Fee: $559 (non-refundable), includes lab fees, lunch, snacks

and continental breakfast.


Fusing experience is required


Join D&L and Anne Nye for a hands-on course with an emphasis on the artistic possibilities of creating scenes with her new palette knife method. This workshop is perfect for traditional watercolor or acrylic painters who would like to try their hand at glass, as well as accomplished glass artists. 

Students will be guided through the process of "palette knife glass" while creating studies of different landscape elements such as clouds, trees, water, and more. Techniques learned through these small studies can then be applied to their own compositions. Participants will learn how to develop sketches from photos for successful frit paintings and also learn which photos work best. Compositional basics such as color balance, shading/contouring, and value will all be discussed and implemented during this workshop.

Participants will be lead through a series of experiments with color, creating thumbnails that will serve as smaller studies, aiding in the creation of the final pieces. The sample tiles created in this workshop will serve as a valuable reference tool for future projects. On the final day of the workshop, Anne and participants will critique and troubleshoot any issues that occurred during the pieces' firing, as well as learn how to apply the palette knife technique to "painting" flowers in glass.

90 COE glass is used in this class. The techniques explored in this class are applicable to either 90 COE or System 96 glass.

Lost Wax Glass Casting

. . . A three-day workshop, beginner level


Instructor: Mark Abildgaard
Dates: June 2nd - 4th, 2014 

Time: 9am - 4pm

Class Fee: $589 (non-refundable), includes continental breakfast & lunch each day, all materials and lab fees.

What to Bring: Notepad, pen, dust mask, glass cutter, safety glasses, & breaking pliers.

No fusing experience is necessary, but is beneficial 

Lost wax casting allows one to cast three-dimensional objects with amazingly detailed textures not possible with other techniques. Join D&L Art Glass Supply and Mark Abildgaard for a three-day workshop which will explore methods using wax in wet clay to create casting molds. The goal of this casting class is not to replicate existing objects in glass, but to utilize objects and textures to create new, unique designs. Students will learn while making two projects; a three-dimensional vessel and a shallow relief sculpture. 

During the three days, participants will be guided through Abildgaard's entire creative process from making impressions into the wet clay, working with hot wax to create bas relief panels, forming plaster/silica molds, to fully understanding glass casting techniques and firing schedules. In-depth discussion of mold mixes and mold making techniques, as well as firing and annealing schedules will also take place during Abildgaard's workshop. Students will create 2 glass pieces during this intensive workshop and leave with the know-how to create one-of-a-kind pieces on their own.

System 96 glass is used in this class. The techniques explored in this class are applicable to either 90 COE or System 96 glass.

Class Fee: $199 (non-refundable), includes lab fees, lunch, snacks

and continental breakfast.


Fusing experience required



Join Richard La Londe and D&L Art Glass Supply for an intensive one day workshop which will cover fusing float glass, otherwise known as window glass, and combining it with numerous materials to create a two-sided dimensional mask.

Vitreous enamels, silver, and other metal foils will be introduced to float glass to create a complex and unique mask, which will then be fused and slumped using a fiber blanket mold. During this workshop, participants will learn to distinguish the different sides of float glass from one another, how to create reactions with mixed metals, and how to put an end to devitrification, helping to enhance future pieces.  Metal stands will also be created in order to display participants’ finished masks.

This is an amazing opportunity to study and interact with a pioneer in glass fusing. La Londe was one of the original glass fusing instructors for Bullseye Glass Company and over the years, he has taught at Pilchuck Glass School, and instructed workshops throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Richard La Londe has also written two books, Fused Glass Art and Technique and Richard La Londe and Friends in which he showcases pieces by himself and others, "how-to" guides, the history of glass fusing, foil techniques and so much more. 

82 COE glass is used in this class. The techniques explored in this class are also applicable to 90 COE or System 96 glass.

Painting on Glass


Instructor: Peter McGrain

Dates: October 13th-15th, 2014

Time: 9am - 4pm

Class Fee: $769 (non-refundable), includes lab fees, lunch, snacks, and continental breakfast.


Fusing experience is required


Art glass icon Peter McGrain will take you through painting on glass processes beginning with an historical overview, a demonstration of general applications and techniques and then his Vitri-Fusaille technique. This process combines the techniques of Flat Glass Fusing with Traditional Glass Painting to produce vivid imagery unconfined by the presence of interfering lead lines or fragmented compositions. 

In this workshop you'll learn a series of design strategies that will lead to an attainable project plan. In the hands-on workshops, through both personal and class projects, you'll explore glass painting techniques by creating a series of glass tiles. Using a variety of traditional glass painting techniques, the tiles will be developed and accomplished with several separate paint applications and kiln firings. Finished tiles can be framed or integrated into more traditional glass working formats.

Through combined individual and group projects, as well as through slide presentations, lectures and demonstrations, these workshops are informative, educational and, most of all, fun.
