In this 5 day course participants will examine and experiment with a variety of different ways to embed imagery in glass. They will sandblast and screen print on found objects, paint with enamels, open face cast with decals and box cast with many layers of images. Experience with glass would be advantageous, but is not essential. Lunch supplied
