Pate de Verre

19th, 20th, and 21st September 2007
3 day glass workshop with celebrated glass artist Gayle Matthias
Pate de Verre is a kiln-formed glass technique utilising finely crushed glass frit, sugar-like in consistency, mixed with water and a binding agent, to form a paste which is applied to the surface of a refractory mould. Layers of paste are built up to form a hollow shell. This process offers controlled placement of colour, intricate patterning and detail.
The Pate de Verre workshop is suitable both for beginners and experienced makers.
