Days for Aberdeen Class Seminar Arrive
I arrive in Aberdeen and set up the classroom.
You see along the wall under the windows I set up assembly style.
After a brief lecture about glass in general and about points specific to fusing...the students make a tile.
After much dilemma over kiln issues...no plug after all, for my huge kiln I brought along..a borrowed kiln that essentially wouldn't heat up well...I pushed the little quick fire I brought along to handle the many fuses of the day and here are the students results.
Bails attached and ready to send to them...this about 1/2 of the class projects..at the time the others were in different stages of completion.
All in all I think the students had a great day!
3 other artist involved were
a couple: Nick and Nichole Fisher represented murals
Rocky Hartberg for Story Illustration
Michelle Bacon on Ceramics
Judging workshop with Nathen Cantwell and Emily Williams Wheeler
key note speaker: Brad Bachmeier
We had a full 2 days...it went smoothly and I think everyone teachers included came away with information to ponder.
