lamination

Glass Lamination
Instructor: Sasha Zhitneva
Time: 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Where: Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago
Cost: $180

This detailed technical workshop will teach participants to work with adhesives to combine the functionality of modern architectural glazing substrates with the tradition of stained glass artistry.

In this course we’re going to discuss the character and qualities of light and ways of manipulating those by means of composing a stained glass/a laminated ​glass ​panel.  As we explore how to design for a particular desired outcome, we are going to use clear glass properties such as transparency, translucency/opacity, ​and textural variety as our palette. Blocking, redirecting, reducing or enhancing light; alternating luminosity and vibrancy of it; creating glass panels that work/are visible in both day light and at night, as well as effective ways of combining glass with various properties in one panel, will be among subjects we are to cover. Attendees will be offered to create several tiles that pertain to those situations and can be latter used as reference material.
