Mastering Your Morton Skills with Jennifer Walkovich-Durney
3 hour class - Max 12 students

Thursday, September 15th 9am-12pm - $75

Come sharpen your glass cutting skills and learn to cut like the pros! In this half day workshop the Morton Portable Glass Shop will be featured. For over 30 years the Morton System has provided hobbyists and professional glass artists the ultimate tool for producing accurate and repetitive glass pieces. A brief portion of class will be dedicated to a discussion on cutting tools available and proper cutting technique, as well as circle cutting. Many styles of glass cutters will be available in class for participants to sample. Students will learn how to set up the MPGS for cutting strips, geometric shapes, angles, and how to quickly cut diamonds and triangles from strips and squares. Hands on cutting will strengthen your Morton skills. Students will create a 6" glass 'quilt square' in class that will be full fused. This class is ideal for fusers and stained glass hobbyists. Cutting experience is required.

Students please bring to class: safety glasses, glass cutter, running pliers, pen, and close toed shoes.

 

Stamping on Glass with Jennifer Walkovich-Durney
3 hour class - Max 12 students
Thursday, September 15th 1:30pm- 4:30pm - $75

During this workshop students will learn how to apply graphic images onto glass using powdered enamels, Stamping Medium and rubber stamps. This class will cover the mixing of high fire enamels with the Stamping Medium, transferring them to the stamp and then to the glass. Mica powders will be used to embellish some of the images. Stamped images are permanent and durable making them ideal for fusing into jewelry or large plates, mosaic pieces, or stained glass borders. Information on firing with low and high fire enamels and firing schedules will be covered. Students will create several stamped pieces in class that can be used in future projects.
Students provide: safety glasses, glass cutter, running pliers, pen and close toed shoes.
