Combining Glass and Stone with Weston Lambert
Wednesday, June 14 to Sunday, June 18, 2017
Visiting Instructor: Weston Lambert
During this intensive workshop students will learn how to merge multiple materials using kiln-casting, laminating, and coldworking. While our initial focus will be on combining glass and stone, the techniques learned will enable you to combine glass with virtually any object and material.
In addition to basic processes using rubber molds, plaster/silica mold making, and kilncasting, we'll also explore the use of a variety of adhesives for gluing glass to different substrates. Experience with basic glass fusing processes is essential.
