In this 3-hour workshop, you will get the opportunity to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind stained glass northern lights panel. The technique that is used is called copper foil overlay and produces a dramatic silhouetted scenescape. You will learn tricks and tips to successfully create your panel. Patterns will be available to help you in your design or you can draw your own animals and scenescape to make the panel uniquely yours. Once you have learned how to create the illusion of silhouette art, you can create practically any image you desire.
No previous glass cutting or soldering experience is required.
Please wear closed-toe shoes.
About the Instructor
My name is Beth Wallace and I’ve done traditional stained glass for over 20 years but it has only been since 2019 that I have really started letting the glass speak for itself. Glass is such an amazing medium in which to work. I love the inspiration I get when I look at a piece of glass; like the glass is trying to tell a story. I get a lot of my inspiration from the natural world around me and love creating outside of the box.
In 2019, I retired from my job as a 911 dispatcher and I’m loving my newfound freedom and flexibility to be able to create this next chapter in my life. Life is short. It was important to me to seize this opportunity to follow my dreams and allow my passion to shine.
My company is Wallace Artistry in Glass. I’m a member NewMakeIt and sell my art at The Maker’s Mark.
