Mark Making on Paper and Glass Workshop - July 7, 2018

Join Jennifer Anne Kelly and Karen Wynne Mackay in a wild and hot mark making workshop using paper and glass at the Current Works of Glass Studio.  

Gestural intuitive marks all made by you. What is your mark? 

This is an exciting and very liberating method of creating beautiful art.

In the morning session professional calligrapher and abstract artist Karen will lead you through advanced mark making techniques on paper with handmade and machine made tools, ink, gesso and paint.  This will open up a whole new creative process as you explore your creative mark making side.

The lunch break will be river side, weather permitting.  Please bring your own lunch or you can pop out to Carleton Place for something (fifteen minute drive from the studio). Complimentary beverages are provided.

In the afternoon session Jennifer will lead the way as you discover how to translate your mark making into glass. Each student will create two 4″x6″ glass art pieces that sit in a cork wood base. These are unique sculptural pieces that look wonderful in natural light or with a candle. We will use powdered glass, hand pulled glass, and crushed glass with a variety of tools.

Fee per student: $110 includes all materials and supplies.

Saturday July 7th 10:00 am to 3:30 pm

The Current Works of Glass Studio is on the Mississippi River in near Almonte, Ontario, Canada.  Jennifer Anne Kelly works with fused and kiln formed glass, natural found elements, and metals. The process, including sand blasting and kiln work, is completed in her teaching studio, Current Works of Glass.

Jennifer's fine art is a wonderful abstraction of the very precise lines she has perfected over the years mixed with her fresh colour pallet. Much of Jennifer’s three-dimensional work is focused on glass nests, feathers, and glass fused into reclaimed wood and stone. 

Karen's art is inspired by words, writing them, reading them and using them to spur on creativity. Her work evokes specific themes, or influences such as Nature, Poetry, Seasons, People, Emotions, Stories and plain old “lightning bolts”. 

Karen is a generous and playful teacher. Jennifer is a master glass artist, with a natural and honest 
approach that evokes daring creativity.
