Imagery in Torchwork
Aaron "Slinger" Golbert
Price: $650 ($700 after April 15)
In the summer of 1997, Aaron Golbert was introduced to lampworking borosilicate glass, and after a few months diligently practicing on the torch he quit his job at a restaurant and began making pendants and marbles for a living. This 5-day intensive class focuses on mixing two-dimensional images and graphic design with flameworked borosilicate solid and hollow forms. We will explore techniques and strategies for creating images, focusing particularly on using Photoshop and Illustrator on the computer. No Photoshop experience is necessary. We will discuss different strategies of using colored glass to achieve successful images on glass. Details will also be covered about different methods of creating photo resist stencils for sandblasting. Recommended 2 years torch experience.
