Painting & Powders Workshop
We will create a scene or landscape tracing the outline in paint, and then coloring in with powders and frits on a single layer of glass.
We can add as much texture and color to the piece as desired. There is more opportunity for light to enhance your piece using this method. Framing options are also simplified. Various firing schedules will be presented and discussed.
We will also discuss and demo using an iPad app and pencil to enhance our personal sketches or photos to use in this technique or any other of your favorite glass-making techniques. Its easy and intuitive.
You will take away a 8”x 8” finished piece, ready to frame!

|I started working in stained glass in 2000 primarily in copper foil and traditional leaded pieces as well as fusing. I enjoy exploring new techniques as well as honing my knowledge of traditional methods. I was first drawn to the craft by the properties exhibited by glass. The light, the texture and the reflective qualities add expression and vitality to a creative vision, inspiring flow from a design to a finished piece. Working in Glass gives one the ability to express an artistic vision in a myriad of ways. I am a member of the Saskatoon Glassworkers' Guild as well as a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council and reside in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.|
