Brazee welcomes Visiting Instructor, Jim Weiler, to teach this 3-day comprehensive pattern bar workshop. Fusers! Take your projects to the next level and learn from fusing and pattern bar expert, Jim Weiler.
In this class we will explore multiple approaches to generate flowing patterns within glass. While the patterns look random, they are ultimately controlled by the maker and are repeatable through the pattern bar technique. Each student will generate two different plates using the two different approaches emphasized in the class.
Students will be exposed to concepts ranging from diverse firing schedules, to glass volume calculations and layups, and specific coldworking techniques to ensure successful glass pieces in the classroom and beyond.
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL - Register for this workshop before July 1, Workshop Tuition - $450. After July 1, Workshop Tuition $475.
