Introduction to Kiln Carving

Sorry, registration has ended.

This is a beginning kiln carving workshop designed to introduce participants to the basic concepts and potential uses of kiln carvings. You will design and complete one 6 x 6 glass square project which will be kiln fused. Kiln carving is a process that achieves a bas relief, textured, or sculpted look in glass. The process involves cutting a pattern or design into 1/8 inch fiber paper, then stacking glass on top of the pattern and firing the piece in a kiln. During firing, the underside of the glass conforms to the fiber paper pattern, assuming its contours and textures. No glass cutting or fused glass skills are required. There are no prerequisites for this workshop. Each student should bring: Xacto knife, and/or sharp craft scissors if desired Fine-point Sharpie and Pencil Design ideas (there are good ones on Pinterest) Glue and toothpicks to glue pieces together Towel for drying washed glass Clean box to transport project if you have one.
