FRIDAY: Borocurious? with Maria Keating
FRIDAY Sept. 15, 7:30-9:00 pm
Explore the borosilicate glass beadmaking process, in which you use a palette of reactive, transparent and crayon colours! Watch Maria develop sculptural shapes not possible in soft glass, and learn to manipulate this harder glass in a hotter flame.
Maria Keating has been flameworking for over a decade, compiling techniques learned from the diverse local glass artists. As a teacher of organic gardening methods at the City of Vancouver Compost Demonstration Garden, she now brings her teaching methods to students who want to working in borosilicate and soft glass.
