Glass Painting in the Kiln: Scenic Images, Bild-Werk Frauenau, Frauenau, Germany
Dates: July 3 - July 19, 2019
Instructor: Michael Endo
Location: Bild-Werk Frauenau, Frauenau, Germany
In this class we will create atmospheric spaces and narratives on the glass surface. By combining a wide variety of image making techniques, we will construct multi-layered, kiln-formed glass paintings. We will learn painting with glass powders and frits, enamel painting adapted for high temperatures, layered kiln-forming, and will touch on drawing techniques and cold working for kiln-glass.
Bild-Werk Frauenau is a regional and international forum for glass and visual arts, a stage for music and culture, and a place for border-crossing encounters, in the glassmaking village Frauenau in Bavaria, Germany. In the International Summer Academy courses and in other workshops at Bild-Werk Frauenau, the principal focus is on artistic and creative work with glass, both hot and cold, both traditional and new creative methods, together with all the visual arts.
