DICHROIC GLASS ——--------------------——$95.00
W/ DENNIS PEABODY
This one day workshop is for beginners as well as jewelers and those with previous glass fusing knowledge. Many techniques for working with the mysterious and alluring dichroic glasses will be covered. Kiln fusing will result in unique glass cabachons. Glass selection, glass cutting, and fusing will allow each student to understand how the dichroic coatings can be combined with each other and with stained glasses to result in a wide and magical range of hue and effect. By layering, etching, grinding and fusing you'll learn to create finished 'stones' for use in silver bezeling or for use in your future PMC projects. Students are encouraged to bring glass cutters and breaking pliers, if owned.
Materials fee will be $25.00
