Here’s a very short video (146 seconds) showing how my glasspainting mixture allows for some sumptuous textural and printmaking effects. On Aug 31st I’ll be teaching a 5-day glasspainting workshop that will explain my mixing procedure and techniques. I still have one place available if anyone is interested.
Dates: Aug 31 to Sept 5th. Cost $720. Location: southern Vermont (3 hrs from Boston, 4hrs from NY city). Go to the teaching pages of my website for more details. Please use the green NEXT buttons and scroll down to read all the text.
Thanks to Ginger Ferrell, who shot this sequence at the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts last summer, and the staff, colleagues and students who made it such a wonderful experience. I hope to teach there again some time.
Last week’s Arrowmont workshop included slide presentations, design seminars, instructions on mixing, thinning and applying glasspaints and several painting demos. You can also watch a brief (2.5 minute) video of me painting basket weave with my fingers and printing with plants. Enjoy!
This next slideshow shares some of the work completed by students last week. All photos by either Ginger Ferrell or Laura Goff Parham. Thanks both!
I just have to end with this picture, taken behind my back (ha ha) by my long-suffering Teaching Assistant, Ginger Ferrell. Thanks Ginger for minding the kilns and taking some lovely photos.
early morning yoga
I had a really great week at Arrowmont. My mornings started at 7am with yoga on the screened porch with Jean Campbell, one of the nine other instructors.
I got a real buzz from being in such an intensely creative community – the staff, faculty and students at Arrowmont. I came home energized with creative batteries recharged. I’ve already started planning my next series of stained glass exhibition panels and looking for somewhere to exhibit new work in the spring.
There are classes scheduled at Arrowmont right up until the end of October.
