Brazee is thrilled to welcome back internationally recognized glass artist and instructor, Richard Parrish. Richard's "Tapestry" technique has captivated students and artists around the country, and we can't wait to bring his methods back to Brazee in March, 2017!

Richard Parrish's Tapestry bowls, trays and wall panels are widely recognized for their intricate patterning and coloration. This workshop will explore how an original idea develops into a comprehensive line of studio glass work. The Tapestry pieces rely on color relationships, design, and technique for success.

Workshop participants will make two pieces as they are introduced to the major techniques involved in making, and how those techniques result in the subtleties of color use and pattern making that make Richard’s Tapestry pieces so compelling. The first piece will introduce the necessary techniques and initial color and pattern thoughts, as well as cold working, slumping and finish options. The second piece will be a larger piece carried through from beginning to full fuse while focusing on the importance of well-made and well-finished work. Further discussion of color principles and pattern design are part of this project.

Richard’s Tapestry pieces are based on a belief that work that begins with ideas and is supported by design and technical knowledge will be stronger, more personal and more original than those works without a solid foundation of these critical components.

Glass cutting experience required.

We will take a lunch break during class. Bring your own, or order Sleepy Bee Cafe during class and we will bring it to you!
