Workshops run by Scot Slessor of SAS Glass.
Each participant will make two painted pieces of stained glass and learn about the history of glass and see many examples of stained, fused and casted glass.
History of glass – What is glass made of? Is there natural glass? How do we join glass pieces? What is glass paint? Painting techniques.
Activity: Removal technique – each participant will prepare a piece of glass and remove paint with sticks and brushes to create an image such as their name, flowers, an animal, a building, etc. Participants will learn to lay a base of paint and trace a design onto glass. Each participant will bring or select a design to trace.
Pieces will be fired at SAS Glass and returned the next day to the Astor for participant/parent pickup.
