You’ve got the fusing thing down…well most of the time
You know how to mix colors
The painting part is still a bit of a challenge
Scale up and out with Binnie in this workshop
In this workshop, participants will learn how to take their work to the next step…larger! We’ll cover planning and thinking on a larger scale, the technical aspects including working in multiples or a single large panel, surface prep, a variety of methods for mark making and temperature control. Individual concerns will be addressed to facilitate taking your work to the next level.
