Powder Drawing in Stained Glass

June 25th - June 30th
Suzanne Head, Kelsie McNair |

Create detailed imagery in stained glass with enamels and powders! Unlike traditional glass painting, powder drawing allows students to fuse their glass at high temperatures with colored glass powder. This method allows students to create colorful drawings in any style, made entirely of glass. Create stunning portraits, figures, animals, and much more. Bring in any drawing or photograph, and transform the image into glass.

What to Expect: In this workshop, we will create detailed imagery with fused glass, and incorporate our designs into a stained glass panel. We’ll learn to draw with glass powders and paint with enamels, then add these images into a stained glass panel using the Tiffany copper foil technique.

Class will begin with demonstrations on how to draw with Bullseye glass powder and paint with glass enamel. Following a short, introductory project, students will have time to work on their own ideas. They’ll be encouraged to bring drawings and photographs to reference for inspiration. Students have the option to draw freehand, or trace a photographic reference. Once the imagery is finished, students will learn how to integrate their work into a stained glass panel.

Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to be fused in the kiln and cool down overnight, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
