Painted Birch Glass Plate Workshop
January 20, 2024 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Learn how to design and create a birch bark design glass plate!
Birch, one of Canada’s most beautiful trees, is characterized by papery, peeling trunks with distinct horizontal banding. In this session, participants will learn to create a glass plate with a painted birch bark design. Through the process, participants will understand the process of creating paint-decorated fused glass – this includes safety, types of glass, co-efficiencies of glass, and the firing of their pieces. The perfect gift for a loved one!!
Suitable for absolute beginners. Materials included. Pieces are fired off-site and will be ready for pick up at TBG 2-3 weeks after the workshop. For safety purposes, wear closed-toed shoes, no loose sleeves/scarves, no jewelry, and hair must be tied back.
Notes: Your piece will be taken off-site to be fired and will be ready for pick up 3-4 weeks later. Samples of birch glass plates are in TBG’s Garden Shop and other pieces are available for purchase!
Saturday, January 20, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
