09 Aug 2012 SCRAP Workshop: Recycled Glass & Collage w/ Reddy Lieb
Exercise the right side of your brain and get creative with collage and glass! Artist Reddy Lieb will show participants how to create decorative and expressive glass panels, jewelry, or small sculptures using recycled glass and collage. In this full-day workshop participants will scrounge through the treasures of scrap to find decorative papers, images, glass pieces, and more to be ued in making mixed media collage works. Reddy will then instruct students in basic glass cutting and preparation techniques as well as instruct them on how to use copper foil and to solder their final pieces. Beginners welcome!
