Birch Glass Plate—Painted Glass Workshop

September 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am 12:30 pm

Register Now

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 birchbark 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. These make the most darling presents!

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.

Note: Samples of birch glass plates are in TBG’s Garden Shop and other pieces are available for purchase!

Sunday, September 17, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Registration: Public $125, Members $115 (plus applicable taxes and fees)
