Put An Image On It: Photo stencils on Glass (a collaboration with UrbanGlass)
Taught by Dorie Guthrie
Born in 1982 in Moline, Illinois, Dorie Guthrie was first exposed to the medium when she stumbled upon a small glass studio in her hometown. Since graduating from Illinois State University in 2008, Guthrie has continued her studies, being awarded scholarships, at Corning Museum of Glass, Penland School of Craft, and Pittsburgh Glass Center where she furthered her technique. Over the last five years Dorie worked on staff at the Pilchuck Glass School, and also has been a teacher’s assistant at Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck, and Pittsburgh Glass Center. Miss Guthrie was selected to demonstrate flameworking at the 2013 Glass Art Society Conference in Toledo, Ohio. Dorie recently taught kilncasting, flameworking, fusing, and imagery techniques at Brazee Street Studio, a Bullseye Resource Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
In collaboration with UrbanGlass, join us for a three-session workshop in which you'll learn the Rayzist process of applying photographic imagery to a flat glass surface.
Starting from digital files of your own images, we will cover the techniques to transform these images through PhotoShop so that they can be translated into stencils. We'll then use these stencils to carve the imagery into the surface of the glass using a sandblaster and, finally, use colored enamels to highlight the work.
Students will leave the workshop with an extensive knowledge of enameling on glass and the firing process.
(No previous PhotoShop knowledge required - we'll guide you through the process!)
