Textured Glass Wall Art Workshop with Stevie Davies
16th March - 2:00pm to 4:30pm
In this popular workshop you will design and create a piece of artwork by manipulating different types of glass details, along with wire and metal, to create a highly textured panel. With a focus of colour and abstract form you will make a truly unique piece of glass art for you home. No experience necessary, just a love of colour and detail.
Your creations will need to be fired, cleaned and finished by Stevie, before returning them back to to the Focus Gallery for you to collect. This will take approximately two weeks (hopefully less). You are welcome to bring your own inspirational images too, we are aiming for abstract shapes and patterns. Stevie wouldn’t recommend anything figurative or any realistic images to try to copy. Your pieces can made with a wire loop, as a hanging, or mounted in a frame. Stevie will have a variety of frames to choose from or you can source your own, before or after the session. What size piece can you expect to make? The course fee will give you enough materials to make a 15cm square piece of glass which could replace the sheet of glass in a picture frame. That way you can feel the textures of your design. Or you may like to create a triptych of 3 5x15cm or a selection of 5cm tiles. Both these options would then need mounting at a later date, Stevie is happy to advise on how you can do this..
