Upcoming opportunities to learn how to knit with glass from artist and "lone pioneer", Carol Milne.
KNITTING WITH GLASS - Seattle-based artist, Carol Milne will share her secret ‘knitted glass’ technique. We will start by knitting or forming strands of dimensional wax into art. You will then learn to transform the wax into glass using the lost-wax casting process. You'll learn all aspects of casting: wax-working, spruing waxes, mold-making, kiln schedules, divesting and cold-working. NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF KNITTING IS REQUIRED. All levels are welcome, but beginners should be prepared to be challenged.
