What you'll learn in this glass sculpture class:

Pâte de verre is created by firing fine glass frit and/or powder, usually mixed with a binding agent, against the surface of a high fire refractory mold. A literal translation from the French: “paste of glass.” 

In this intensive weekend workshop, you will learn the basics of this ancient glass technique by creating a low relief, 3-dimensional form, along with sample test color tiles. Students will also take away a clear understanding of high and low firing schedules, accompanied by basic cold working skills.

Please Note:
