Glass


A community of enthusiastic artists and students call the Glass Studio at Brookfield Craft Center home. Lampwork, fused and stained glass classes are generally held as short Sampler Workshops or weekend workshops. Classes range from introductory to master-level, along with Lampwork Open Studio programs for independent practice. Lampwork beads are made using our 7 Minor torches fueled by oxy/propane and an annealing kiln. Small and large fused glass pieces are fired and slumped in “bathtub” and tabletop kilns.

GF7302 Sept 10 2017 (10am-2:00pm) Sunday (Glass Studio)

When kiln casting with fiber paper, the student creates an image on the paper. Think paper dolls. The image is then cut out with scissors or Exacto knife. The image is then placed on the kiln shelf with either transparent or opal glass laid over it. The decision is made to have the image recessed on the top layer of glass or bottom layer. All this will be explained in class with examples to choose from. One application is a grandmother plate in which a child's hand is traced onto paper and then transferred to the fiber paper. The student may choose to have a flat presentation or to have the flat presentation slumped into a dish shape. Ages 16 and older. A materials fee of $33.00 will be added to the tuition.
