Glass Art Class on Zoom
Because traveling on the road to teach has been an obstacle during these last few years, distance learning is on the rise. Teaching via Zoom is new and can be a valuable tool to increase knowledge of techniques. This new Zoom class will be 3 sessions long, once a week and limited to 20 students. Class times will be 1 and 1/2 hours at a set time each week. You will have the opportunity to take part in a lesson, view a demonstration, and ask questions. The classes will be set up so you can complete a step-by-step project, from start to finish, within the 3 session time frame. The classes will be recorded and you will have access to the recording for a limited time. As a class participant, you will also have the opportunity to join a private facebook group. This group will be monitored by Alice and you will be encouraged to share your work, ask questions and share ideas.
Building A Glass Forest
In this 3 session Zoom course, you will be guided through the cutting, assembling and firing a 9" x 12" layered glass forest.
The artist and certified teacher, Alice Benvie Gebhart, will demonstrate each step of the process. She will answer questions and advise on glass construction, design, and firing.
Once you have registered, you will receive a materials list of glass and tools you will need to complete the project along with a course outline. Approximately two days before each class, you will be emailed a link and password to the zoom class.
You will also receive firing schedules for firing your piece.
It is not required, nor is it expected for you to work on or complete your piece during the sessions. You will have the opportunity to review the session if needed and work on the process at your own pace.
If you are local to the New England area, the glass will be available from Heritage Gifts & Glass Studio at an extra fee along with kiln use for firing.
The Reusche glass stainer and gum arabic mixture used in class will also be available at an extra fee. Shipping within continental US is available on this item only.
This is a master-level class, designed for students who have worked with glass and are familiar with glass fusing.
