'Creating Dimension PLUS' - Paul Messink's fantastic course comes to Bristol, with a world exclusive 5th day!
Want to create thick glass panels that have great dimension and depth?
In this 5-day class, students will learn how to apply enamel to glass layers, and then stack and fuse these layers into solid panels. Topics covered include design and image selection, layout, discussion of enamels and how they respond to fusing temperatures, painting medium, how to mix and apply enamels, fusing schedules, bubble control, kiln loading instructions, and finishing techniques.
The emphasis of this workshop is the processes involved in creating thick panels that include great dimension. It is not primarily a painting workshop, however many painting tips and techniques are also provided. Although drawing and painting experience is helpful, it is not required. Prior kiln-work experience is required, however.
Students will complete several initial exercises, and 2 additional projects during this class, and are encouraged to choose and bring to the class printed images for compositions they would like to use for these projects.
Exclusive - Enjoy a fifth day on this course at no extra cost, as Paul teaches 'an alternative to screen-printing' for the first time which will be incorporated into your course projects. Full details of this will be revealed to those who book. Students will need a laptop for this project. If you are unable to bring your own, please contact us before booking and we will check we will have one available for you to borrow.
