Supporting Your Work
with Custom Stands
Bob is a master when it comes to displaying his work. He has used many innovative tools and techniques to display his pieces in a creative way. He will be taking some time to share some techniques: using standoffs to display a piece on a wall, what glue to use for what technique, and framing considerations.
This workshop will focus on creating original stands/supports that enhance the look of your work! Bob will also be sharing his tips and tricks on displaying even your most challenging pieces.
Each participant will make two different stands custom built for their typical (approx.8"x8") finished fused or stained glass panel/ plate/ or bowl.

|I have always liked the way stained glass can be manipulated to form various artistic or functional pieces, first learning glass working techniques using foil, and now trying various methods of fusing glass to explore more possibilities in what glass can do.|
