    You will MAKE IT:
  • Slabs of glass using several colors of Wissmach Glass
  • Vitrigraph Stringers
  • Frit and stringer pre fused elements
  • Mold from KLB
    To MAKE IT:
  • On edge design
  • Tapestry design
  • Drop out sculpture/vase
  • To cast glass
  • To deep drop glass

Petra will also demonstrate her latest technique where you will learn how to make interesting shapes, like her octopus bowl or the flow. Don’t worry; it won’t be chicken wire.

And of course, your own drop out mold made with Kaiser Lee Board will have an interesting shape. Instead of cutting off the rim of your fused glass vase; Petra will show you how to add the most interest to the rim and “Make It Truly Yours”. KL-Board molds are reusable countless times and can be used for slumping, draping and castings. Nearly anything you can think of can be realized with KL-board. It is the only tool that enables us to make some of the most unusual glass art objects with surprisingly little effort. KL-board is very versatile and will definitely expand your pallet of kiln worked glass.

Petra Kaiser has taught workshops all over the United States and abroad. You may know her from her popular books, Introduction to Glass Fusing, Fuse It and Glass Forming with the Mold Block System. She specializes in the creating and developing of new forms and products. Petra will share her ideas and techniques that she has discovered over the past 18 years of kiln forming glass via slide show, samples of her exquisite artwork and demonstrations. And don’t forget to bring your fusing questions and your glass projects or KLB molds that you want to discuss with Petra. Join us for 2 days of creativity, get inspired and learn some new techniques, connect and collaborate with fellow artists.

“Only by sharing we can progress to the next level of creating stunning artwork” Petra Kaiser.
