Learn several methods of bending glass strips and weaving them into textural patterns. You will prepare the strips using one of the ceramic forming molds, or with a mold constructed from fiber paper. The strips are incorporated into a basket weave. We will cover the firing considerations with the different types of glass, spacing of the glass, and the firing schedules. You will have the opportunity to make two or three rectangular or round basket weave panels to take home. Students may add a base layer to their basket weaves or slump them into a plate or bowl on their own. Materials Fee: $30 (includes all glass, fiber paper, Thinfire, and advanced prep of weaving strips). This Fee is payable with cash/local check in Class.
