Introduction to Pâte de Verre

November 9th - November 10th
Dorie Guthrie |

Pâte de verre, French for ‘paste of glass’, is created by firing fine glass frit and/or powder, usually mixed with a binding agent, against the surface of a high fire refractory mold. In this intensive weekend workshop, you will learn the basics of this ancient glass technique by creating a low-relief, three-dimensional form, along with sample test-color tiles. Students will also take away a clear understanding of high and low firing schedules, as well as basic cold working skills.
