I’m honored to be one of their invitational exhibiting artist, and an invited instructor, teaching a 3 to 4-day master class during the symposium dates Friday – Monday the 6th — 9th March 2020.
I will be teaching a 4-day Glass & Mixed Media workshop, “Glass and the Altered Book”, at the Schack Art Center located in Everett, WA 40 miles north of Seattle, Schack Art Center provides the perfect venue for Currents 2020 with galleries for the exhibition and exceptional studios for master classes and lectures. My workshop teaches open-faced glass casting, silk-screen on glass, adhesives, engineering and design. Students leave with a completed wall-hung sculpture created from an altered book.
