Mad Hatter Detail

New York artist and educator Joseph Cavalieri is excited to present a hands-on workshop sharing and practicing his favorite techniques for adding detailed imagery to the surface of stained glass. Joseph has taught over seventy painting on glass workshops domestically as well as internationally including at Penland, Pilchuck and UrbanGlass. 

The focus of the workshop is to learn and practice how to add detailed images to your stained glass works by demonstrations and doing all the techniques yourself. In class you will learn four processes include airbrushing glass (using an atomizer and airbrush), pen and-ink drawing, silk-screen printing using existing screens Joseph will bring, and painting glass. No need to be an expert painter, we will be tracing images in the class. 

Students will each make five 3x3 inch glass tiles.

Enamels are painted on the glass surface then kiln fired onto the glass. Since this is a 4-hour workshop we wont be firing the glass, instead Joseph will bring samples of finished fired glass for each of these techniques. Students will leave with the knowledge of seeing and practicing all of these techniques, and have the option to bring the unfired glass home with them along with the firing schedule, pens, pen points and brushes. The glass can be added to fused, mosaic and stained glass art.

Great for beginners and those with experience working with stained glass who want to bring it to the next level. Handouts of supplies and viewing of a framing and lighting system developed by Cavalieri will be shared in class as well. 

Students will not need to bring materials.
