Pate de verre Workshop

When: 10am-4pm 12/08/2017

Where: Millennium Court Arts Centre, Portadown

Price: £35 (Advance booking required)

 

Glass Artist Alison Lowry will be leading the workshop where participants will learn how to create a pate de verre vessel and a flat personalized piece of pate de verre. Pate de verre is french for ‘glass paste’. Fine crushed glass (frit) is combined with glue and pressed into moulds to form thin walled glass pieces. One advantage of this technique is that it enables the maker to precisely place colours within a piece in a way other glass casting techniques do not allow. 

In this fun hands-on class, participants will produce their own unique vessel and 2-D piece of glass. No previous experience is necessary, but please dress for mess! All equipment and glass will be supplied. Suitable for ages 18+.
