Memory Layers: Generating Images on GlassJuly 25th - July 29th
Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Josefina Muñoz Torres |
This class is an invitation for illustrators, painters, designers, and anybody with an interest in the graphic image to experiment with the possibilities of the pictorial representation on glass. Participants will be challenged to delve into their own memory lane to work with the central images -photography, sketches, drawings, texts- that portray their narratives. Digital and analog approaches will be used to define the layers that build these images, which will be translated into hot-casted, kiln-formed, and found glass through a series of traditional and experimental techniques.
What to Expect: Processes will include the creation of glass blanks (hot-ladle and kiln-forming) and the generation of images through enameling, decals, frit-work, stencil, photo-raysist, carving, slumping, fusing, and etching processes.
We will focus on demonstrating multiple techniques, with space to help artists work on realizing their ideas in glass and imagery. This class will include contemporary and art historical context for working with imagery and memory and be a split between demo, learning, and a lot of practice time
Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 12 and up.
Additional work time for intensive students: Students will also have access to additional hours in the studio, without instruction, on Wednesday - Saturday from 5-8pm (excluding the hot shop).
