Weave Class – Thursday, July 29 through midday Sunday, August 1st – Cost - $795

Come to Contempo Art Glass, in Arlington, Texas and learn about basic and advanced glass weaving techniques from weaving master & kiln formed glass artist Larry Pile (www.larrypileglass.com).

The class will start with the basics; color theory, mold preparation, strip cutting and slumping, etc. and move into advanced techniques including custom mold-making, displaying our weaves, advanced strip preparation, creating weaves in various shapes, etc.  A complete set of handouts, including firing schedules for slumping and tack-fusing will be shared.

Each student will make an 11” x 20” woven sculpture, a Silke Mat custom mold (that the student may take home for use in future projects) and will mount their weave on 1” acrylic tubing for a lovely, simple, offset wall display.  All glass and materials will be provided in this amazing class.

Students will leave with technical and creative knowledge about how to design, build, fire and display a glass weave at a professional level.  Students will develop an understanding of how to make a Silke Mat reusable mold.  Students will learn an amazing way to cut 1” acrylic tubing and offset mount glass pieces inexpensively and beautifully.
