Workshop participants will make two finished pieces. They will be introduced to the major techniques involved in making these pieces and how these techniques result in the subtleties of pattern making and color use that make Richard’s Tapestry pieces so compelling.
The first piece will introduce the necessary techniques and initial color and pattern thoughts. The second piece will be a significant piece carried through from beginning to finished piece while focusing on the importance of well-made and well-finished work. Additional small samples and study pieces will be introduced along the way.

Using colored powders on clear sheet glass, students will develop patterns and images that will be fired, cut up, re-assembled and stacked into 2-4 layer thick compositions that will be fired again – creating visually complex finished works.
We will create patterned and colored 6” x 6” pieces that we will then cut up and assemble into “collaged” final pieces: one 7” x 9” block two layers thick and one 7” x 9” block 4 layers thick.
