Masks & Modeling Glass – Lois Manno

August 21-23, 2020

8:30am – 5:00PM


Back for another workshop – Come and spend 3 days with Lois Manno.

Modeling Glass is a glass art medium that is known for its versatility, pliability and simplicity to work with. This medium is perfect for beginners and professional artists alike.  

Did you know:

  • You can paint Modeling Glass 
  • Modeling Glass is non-toxic
  • No need for freezing

Lois will be taking us through all the steps to make a unique three-dimensional mask, sing a special draping form, combining cut sheet glass with elements sculpted from Modeling Glass.  With a bit of fairy dust (aka, dichroic) thrown in to add some sparkle to your creations.

She’ll demonstrate how to mix Modeling Glass and will share tips and tricks that will change the way you think about making three-dimensional forms with glass. Modeling Glass makes it possible to make sculpted shapes fast and easily…you’re limited only by your imagination. 

You’ll also learn about the wonderful creative options of combining Modeling Glass with Rogue Enamels. The possibilities are endless!


  • All materials included.
  • Detailed handouts, firing schedules and cutting templates all included.
  • Breakfast snacks + Catered Lunch

"​A welcoming and well equipped studio that inspires creativity. All levels of artists will enjoy working at Glass EMotions! There is zero intimidation factor because Crystal wants everyone who attends a class to succeed in their creative vision. A fantastic addition to the Ottawa art scene!

Lois studied drawing and painting in college and has been a professional artist for over thirty years. After taking several Bullseye workshops to learn how to fuse, work with frit, exploit reactions, and cold-work glass, she began experimenting with powders and frit in her own way. After several years of research, Lois developed a new product called Modeling Glass, a binder and liquid medium that transforms powdered glass into a substance that can be shaped and molded similar to working with clay. Her signature glass feathers and sculptural glass work are made using Modeling Glass combined with other techniques.
