I am fascinated with the richness that results from pattern making and the color variations that are possible. There is a mathematical aspect to pattern making that appeals to my interest in structure and order.


The Tapestry and Beyond Intensive is a boot camp like class limited to 6 people maximum. It covers material from both the Tapestry class and the Beyond Tapestry class plus more. The limited number of people allows for extended explorations of ideas with more one-on-one time with Richard. A complete range of material colors and types, including stringers, sheet glass, and frit will be available for experimentation and projects. People who have taken either Tapestry class are welcome in this class. This class is not offered at any other location.

This class is appropriate for people who have taken Tapestry and want to expand their knowledge and it is appropriate for people who have not taken either Tapestry class. Many of the techniques in this class can be adapted and used with other patterned glass. 


Each person will develop her/his own patterns through sketching and mock-ups. Techniques will be explored and developed as needed to achieve these patterns including multiple firings; cutting and reassembling; slumping; and coldworking and finishing.


Prerequisite: Glass cutting experience, particularly strip cutting at 4mm thickness, and prior kilnforming experience.

5 days
