Workshop with J. Kenneth Leap
1 SPACE LEFT
July 20 - 24 @ Bryn Athyn College
Explore the art of mixing, applying, and firing glass-based paints, enamels, and stains. While the primary focus of the class is painting on the two-dimensional surface as it relates to stained glass, participants also learn fusing techniques that can be adapted to glass tile-making, jewelry, and mosaic projects. A variety of traditional and experimental techniques will be covered. Participants complete a stained glass panel, which is assembled using lead came, the original material used to construct stained glass windows. Prior glass experience is not required. Returning students may use the studio time to create a more advanced project of their choice.
Classes meet 9-5. On site housing available. Includes special tours of Glencairn Museum's collection of medieval glass and the glass cache at Bryn Athyn Cathedral.
