FUR-DY: Pet Portrait in Glass Workshop

Del Ray Artisans Gallery
2704 Mount Vernon Ave
Alexandria, Virginia 22301

Del Ray Artisans turns THIRTY this year. To celebrate, take one or more of our rhyming programs in September!

During the FUR-DY: Pet Portrait in Glass Workshop honor your favorite pet by creating a portrait with powdered glass! Following the “sgraffito” technique, students will use glass powder to create black and white portraits of their favorite pets on an 8′ x 8″ fusible glass square. (The instructor may be able to bring additional limited colors such as brown, beige, and orange. This is TBD.)

Students will create their portraits and get them “ready to fire” on Saturday, September 10 from 9:30 am-12 pm. After the class, the instructor will take the portraits to her studio, kiln-fire them, and then return the finished, framed portraits to students on Wednesday, September 14 from 7-8 pm for a class discussion.

All supplies are provided. No experience is needed. Students should bring at least 2 black and white photos of their pet printed on computer paper. The photos should fit nicely on an 8″ x 8″ square. If you need assistance in sizing your image, please contact instructor Betsy Mead at [email protected]
