The Watercolour Effect
Saturday 10th October – Sunday 11th October 2020
In this workshop will you discover how create imagery in glass that has the feel, vitality and expressive qualities of a watercolour. Michael has been doing watercolours since his childhood and integrates a great deal of that knowledge into his kiln formed glass work and workshops. This technique has been developed as a result of those experiences and also as a way to reflect the same feeling as a painted piece. Using glass as our ‘paint’ we utilise the properties of the material to express that unique character; colour, depth, transparency.
Minimal use of dichro will add spice and significance to the pieces, as well as some interesting ways of implementing and altering it.
All materials required for the class are included. Students are invited to bring their own basic tools (if you have them)
Suitable for students of all abilities – if you can cut glass you are welcome!
Classes start at 10am on the first day. Refreshments available throughout the day, and a light lunch is included
