This Glass Arts workshop affords the opportunity to create using color and light. Fused glass and traditional stained glass techniques are the two primary methods we use in this studio. Participants design and then fuse glass through a process called "slumping" in a high-fire kiln, or cut and frame glass using lead-free soldering techniques.
Using these methods, participants create window panels, boxes, frames, bowls, platters, jewelry, as well as other functional and decorative pieces. A $60 fee covers initial materials used.
Faculty: Elise L’Herault
Elise L’Herault graduated from Boston University in 2008 with a BFA in painting. She has been creating with glass (primarily fused glass) since 2007. She has experience teaching people of all ages, abilities and skill levels. Her background in painting gives her a unique approach for teaching exploratory flat glass techniques. Her work focuses on bold colors, a variety of line qualities and solid shapes with free association being a predominant theme as well as floral and figurative motifs.
