This workshop came about from a few friends who wanted to learn how to incorporate glass into their work and to learn the magic of mirroring. I invite you to join us!
You will learn basic mirroring techniques for both 2D and 3D objects. We will discuss different types of films and how to apply them to flat glass. We will cover the basics of metal gilding and glass gilding. Come with your own ideas or follow a template provided for you to build a small sculpture using stained glass techniques. Once sculptures are finished, we will use a silvering solution to create a mirrored surface.
