Brazee is THRILLED to welcome Dorie Guthrie back to the studio! Do not miss your chance to learn from Guthrie, an instructor as wonderful and enthusiastic as she is talented!
Explore the complex and transformational world of glass kilncasting in this 5-day comprehensive workshop! Real objects, forms and materials can be translated into glass through the art of mold making. Students in this workshop will learn every step of the moldmaking and kilncasting process as they design and create their own high-fire refractory molds. Students will learn numerous techniques that can house a multitude of mediums to create multiples in wax. Students will also learn coldworking techniques to produce ready-to-display kilncast pieces, along with a detailed discussion about firing programs and more. Join us for our most comprehensive kilncasting workshop to date!
