A one day glass painting workshop with Verity Pulford at North Lands Creative which will take inspiration from the Caithness Landscape.
A walk and talk will take place in the morning where participation will take photographs / sketch / collect plants to use as inspiration for glass painting in the afternoon.
Techniques will include the scraffito technique and building tone and line using traditional painting methods.
Verity is inspired by organic structures- in particular the small details- the shapes and textures of algae, fungi, lichen, moss and ferns. She is also fascinated by the cataloguing of nature- natural history artifacts, early cyanotypes, x-rays, microscopic images of the human body and botanical drawings.
The qualities of glass inspire Verity constantly, the fragility and strength, the transparency, opacity, ability to create layers, depth, pattern, texture- and all of this combined with the ability to transmit, reflect and channel light.
North Lands is located in the wild and dramatic landscape of Caithness on the North East Coast of Scotland, North Lands Creative is one of the world’s most prestigious centres for the study and development of glass as an artform, providing excellent facilities, opportunities and inspiration to artists working with glass from all over the world.
All skill levels welcome.
