Kristin Thielking’s Workshop

Dates: Saturday & Sunday, November 14-15
Times: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Cost: $100.00
Registration: robinsonl@ecu.edu

Visiting artist lecture at ECU: Thursday, November 12, Jenkins 1220, 6:30 pm will enable participants to explore drawing and printmaking techniques on glass and create two finished fused-glass pieces. Glass allows for the layering of imagery and text in a way that is quite different than working with paper or canvas. Working with fused glass also provides the opportunity to explore transparency and the way light can activate the layers, as well as create work that can withstand the elements and be exhibited outside or be integrated into an architectural space. Because of the short nature of the workshop, we will provide prepared silkscreens with imagery and text that relate to the theme micro/macro that participants can choose from and combine to create unique works. Thielking will also discuss the technical side of working with kiln-glass and how to use a traditional programmable ceramic kiln to fire glass. No experience necessary.
