Let’s have fun with glass powders! In this class we will explore different ways to safely use glass powder to create beautiful backgrounds as well as detailed design elements. Glass lace, frit slurry, fossil vitrae and powder wafer techniques will be presented and as time allows, you will make design elements using your favorite techniques that can be used to create a small class project or transported home for future use.
Students need to bring or purchase at GEM: Glass cutting tools, including mosaic nippers and safety glasses. (Some tools may be available to borrow for this class).
Janine teaches this class in Las Vegas at Glass Craft and Bead Expo where it sells out quickly. She also teaches regularly at her home studio in Arroyo Grande, CA and at glass shops all over the USA, Canada and beyond.
More about Janine from Janine: What began as an artistic escape from a rigorous science-based Master’s Program many years ago has evolved into full time fun as I enjoy sharing my love of glass with students. My foundation of over 30 years’ experience working with stained, lampworked and fused glass and my endless experimentation with new techniques allows me to share the basics as well as more advanced topics with students of all levels. I own a glass teaching studio in Arroyo Grande, California where I regularly present classes and workshops when I am not traveling to hosting studios.
