Impression Mold Glass Casting with Artist Jeffrey Stenbom – Public Workshop 11/13

Friday, November 13, 2020 | 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Spots Available: 6
Registration Cut-off Date: Friday, November 6, 2020
$75.00

In this workshop, students will learn a method of glass casting. Glass casting is the process where glass objects are cast by melting glass into a plaster mold where it will then cool and solidify.

Students will be asked to bring several small items that are significant or important to them. An impression will be made in clay with these items which is translated into a plaster mold from which the glass casting is made.

You will be able to capture a thought, a memory or a significant time in your life in glass. The small items you bring may get a bit dirty from the clay but can easily be washed. You will be able to take your personal objects home that day. Various objects will also be provided for you to use.

Participants will Supply:
Items to press into clay-Just about anything that is relatively small will work (no larger than 5’’)

  • Stiffer items are better than soft items
  • Recognizable items are nice to use
  • Depending in the size, only portions of the item may be pressed to make the impression.
  • The Slab of clay they will work on is approx. 5’’x5’’ so if they want to try to use the full item, it will need to be no larger than 4’’x4’’

Examples:
Rope
Little army men
Leaves
Pinecones
Pine needles
Fist
Silverware
Embroidered patches

Photos on Glass 11_21_20

Saturday, November 21, 2020 | 10am - 1pm
Spots Available: 2
Registration Cut-off Date: Saturday, November 14, 2020
$53.00

Transfer your favorite black and white photo or image into fused glass to create a one of a kind piece of art. Students will email a digital copy of a photo to the museum prior to the class so it will be ready to be transferred onto glass on the day of the class. After fusing the image into a plate or tray, the image will have a warm sepia tone.

Choose a photograph that you would like fused into glass:

  • Finished size of project will be 7” x 7”, so your image should be smaller to allow for a glass border. Suggested size is 4” x 4” , 5” x 5, ”or 4” x 6”
  • For best results, choose a high contrast image and convert to black and white if possible. If you are not able to convert to black and white, you may send a color image.
  • Format should be .jpg.
  • The clarity (resolution) of your printed image will be the clarity in your final fused project, so you may want to print a copy at home to check the clarity before emailing.

Send your image to the museum email address: [email protected]

All experience levels welcome.

Sara Rezin, Instructor
