Glass and Mosaic Classes

Spring Glass Classes with SJCGA member Lynn Golden 
If you’ve wondered what glass fusing is all about, or if you are looking for a way to combine ceramic and the bright colors of art glass, I will be teaching 2 classes this spring: 
Glass Fusing: This is a 3-day workshop focusing on one specialized technique per session. Decorative processes such as torch work stringers, frits, and enamels, rubber stamping and metal infusions are covered in this workshop. 
Dates: Saturday, March 5, 19 & 26 
1:00 – 4:00pm 
Cost: $200.00 includes supplies. Bring cutting tool and safety glasses. 

Mosaic: Make a stunning stepping stone, table top or wall plaque in this three-part course. Use of found objects and “hot mosaic” components will be included. 
NOTE: Don’t panic when you see the words “bring glass cutting tools”. The cutting involved in both these classes is the most basic and minimal. You can learn the skill needed for these classes in a matter of minutes! You don’t have to be able to draw either! Come and have fun! 
Dates: Saturday, April 9, 16 & 23 
1:00 – 4:00pm 
Cost: $80.00; bring cutting tools and safety glasses

Frank Boyden was trained as a painter, printmaker and art historian but in 1968 got seduced by clay and the world of the ceramic arts. In 1972 he stopped painting and gave his full time to clay. He began the journey of learning how to incorporate drawing techniques onto vessels and other ceramic objects and this journey continues to this day. In 1984 he built the sixth anagama kiln in America and has spent the time since then perfecting the discipline of wood firing. What sets Boyden's work apart and makes it cohesive over the past 40+ years is his energetic and fluid incised drawings on vases. Boyden received Master of Fine Arts in painting from Yale University. His work is collected and exhibited internationally and he has conducted hundreds of workshops and lectures around the world.
