November 4th or 11th (Remembrance Day) – Celebrate Dia de los Muertos and create a Day of the Dead glass “sugar” skull! This workshop is a great introduction to pâte de verre, which uses granules of glass to create sculptural forms.
Students are provided with a plaster silica skull mold and pâte de verre methods and design options are demonstrated.
Each student personalizes their ‘sugar’ skull using colourful glass powders and fill their molds with a glass frit paste. Student pieces will then be kiln-dried and back-filled prior to a final firing.
Pieces will be fired after the workshop and available for pick-up a few days later. Turn your glass sugar skull into a light (discussion and demo in class). Your glass sugar skull will last forever with proper care.
There’s 1 space available in the JUST METAL course starting up October 29th. Lost wax casting in Sterling silver and Bronze! More info found under FALL Courses & Workshops
