Glass Modelling I with Lois Manno

October 13, 2018 - October 15, 2018


About the Class

Traditional techniques of working with frit and powdered glass to create three-dimensional objects tend to be labor-intensive, messy, and require specialized glass casting knowledge. Over the past five years, Lois Manno has developed an entirely new way to work with powders to create fully dimensional work without the undesirable features of casting. The results of her efforts are unlimited possibilities.

In this three day workshop, Lois will teach all the basics of making and working with Modeling Glass™. Students will make multiple projects, including learning step-by-step how to make their own realistic glass feathers. Students will also be introduced to other ways of working with Modeling Glass while they explore just some of the nearly limitless possibilities.

Display methods will be discussed and demonstrated. All firing schedules will be provided.
