Our classes are intended to teach “small canvas” techniques. Those are particularly
well suited for jewelry, but can be expanded to use in larger applications.
These were made using techniques taught in this class
We give you the tools to differentiate your work from Other glass jewelry. Go beyond primitive dichroic pendants
Students who have taken our classes say this is the most exciting.
Images on Glass
Screen Printing and Computer Based Design
to Create Painted Masterpieces
This class will enable the glass artist to create wonderfully detailed small (and
large) pieces for jewelry, or for elements in larger pieces (see examples below)
. The backbone of this will be screen printing on small pieces. Screen Printing
will be done in an inexpensive method, easily and safely accomplished in the home
You will learn to make your own reusable screens and then use them as described below.
Screen printing will be used to:
1) Create color artwork for your piece
2) Create exciting backgrounds to enhance the foreground artwork.
3) Enhance your screen print work with micas.
4 Add spot artwork to already created pieces.
5 Add gold accents to pieces
Painting on pendants to enhance screen printed and decal pieces will be examined
in more detail. Multilevel glass creations will be made, each giving a different
element to the final piece. See the examples below for an indication of the diversity
of techniques and end results possible.
Students are expected to have basic knowledge of cutting glass as well as a basic
understanding of glass techniques.
