Adding Depth to Stained Glass Art
September 11th - September 12th
9am - 5pm
Class Fee: $250.00
This two-day workshop is intended for intermediate and advanced students: people who have already mastered the basic techniques of working in stained glass, particularly the copper foil methods.
Number of Students: 6 - 12
One of the qualities for which Robert Oddy's work is known is the illusion of depth in his stained glass windows and panels. This is achieved by a combination of techniques, including the use of multiple layers of glass (Plating), copper foil overlays, careful choice of glass and appropriate design principles. These techniques will be the topic of this workshop. Bob will explain these principles and his techniques in a number of short presentations and you will be able to work on the included project to give you hands-on experience in these techniques.
The pattern for the project will be sent to you prior to the workshop and you are asked to do some preliminary work so that you can focus on the more advanced work during the workshop. Please note that this project will take longer than one weekend to make so it would be a good idea to start on the project before the workshop. It is strongly suggested to work on the front layer, and leave anything that you find problematic until the class.
Students are to bring their own small hand tools - grinders and saws will be provided in the classroom. Click here to view glass suggestions and instructions for the project. Students will be given a break on both days to go to lunch. Warner Stained Glass has a break room with a refrigerator and microwave the students can use during the weekend.
