Fire up your inner alchemist! In this interactive online class*, learn to conjure and command a wide array of special effects in and between Bullseye glass styles. Led by Bonnie Celeste of Bullseye's Research and Education Department, you will explore the intrigues of glass chemistry, the subtle and dramatic reaction potentials of various glass styles, and the art of harnessing (or avoiding) those reactions.
The class consists of two live, online sessions. During the first, instructor Bonnie will teach you about reactions using videos, slides, and demonstrations. She will provide instructions on how to create a number of small reaction tests in your kiln. You will use those tests to make your own larger project. (You will want to have access to a kiln in which you can easily fit a 6x10” project.) Complete materials lists and other helpful resources are provided to students in the downloadable class guide. For the second session, students will upload images of their tests and larger projects, along with process notes. With instructor Bonnie as facilitator and guide, the group will then investigate the inevitably intriguing results of everyone’s work.
*A desktop or laptop computer with strong, reliable internet access is required. A tablet may work, but phones are not recommended. A web camera is optional but encouraged to enhance the class atmosphere.
This class is appropriate for a wide range of experience levels — from students who are relatively new to kiln-glass to advanced practitioners who have simply never delved into the possibilities of working with reactive glass chemistries and other special effects.
