This brand New course will help you to learn how to manipulate the most versatile of glass mediums, Frit!
Students will learn a series of techniques on powder manipulation, scraffito, stencilling and layering of powdered frit. This will help to create gradients and add depth to your glass art work. Students will explore plaster carving, a process in which hand drawn images can be translated into glass without losing the finer quality or detail. Students will also experiment with frit painting, create an image vertically by sifting frit between two sheets of glass.
You will create test tiles and two finished works of glass art that will be posted to you after the course.
