Glass Skills Class: Contemporary Glass Painting and Layering
Jeff Zimmer will lead a five day class about creating three dimensional images on glass
using both traditional and photographic approaches.
The class will exploit the transparency of glass and layer techniques and images to collage
and create a sense of space. Hand painted enamels, photo-sensitive sandblast resists and printed transfers will be used.
The experience will be enhanced through discussions and presentations. There will be discussion about how creating a 3-D image affects its content and our experience of it.
The course will be of interest to individuals looking to expand their practice into a new dimension. Those with experience of image-making on glass will learn to see their work in a new way while those new to painting on glass will learn the both the basics of the craft and novel applications.
