"I learned so many great things about glass."

Glass affords students the opportunity to create using color and light. Fused glass and traditional stained glass techniques are the two primary methods available to students in this workshop. Students choose to 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 both methods, students create window panels, boxes, frames, bowls, platters, jewelry, and other functional and decorative pieces.

Faculty Session I: Cora Tillet

Cora Tillett, Glass Arts Teacher, was born in Mexico City, within a family of artists, and studied veterinary medicine looking for a less chaotic life. In 2006, when she moved to Germany, she realized she could not continue working as a vet and was more at peace away from that life. In 2009 she returned to Mexico, and studied stained glass and blacksmithing for 2 years, loving every aspect of it, finding her true passion in life, sculpture. Her work focuses mainly in three dimensional stained glass pieces inspired by sea life.


Faculty Session II: 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 own 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.
