Wire & Glass Everlasting Flowers
Saturday 1 July, 10am-4pm
In this one-day, mixed media workshop with stained glass artist Caroline Lambert, you will be using wire, copper and glass to learn a variety of techniques from hand shaping wire, copperfoiling, soldering and the use of patina to create a selection of flowers and foliage which are based on the natural forms seen in hedgerows, flower gardens and landscapes. By the end of the day, you will have created your very own display of beautiful everlasting flowers.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience of glass. A good level of manual dexterity is essential.
Caroline will bring all the tools, equipment and materials needed to create your flowers on the day but please bring your own apron, notebook and something for your creations to be displayed in such as an interesting bottle or vase 15-20cm tall.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available during the workshop but please bring your own lunch.
Caroline Lambert has been working exclusively with glass for more than 20 years. She is a familiar face at Kingshill House where she teaches stained glass full time. In her spare time, she is a practising artist who continues to explore glass as a creative medium.
