Based in Cape Coral, Florida, Tanya Veit is an acclaimed artist and teacher specializing in the latest fusing techniques and innovative work with decals. Her 2011 & 2012 U.S. tour has been a hit and completely sold out and she will be debuting her Extreme Glass Fusing Techniques at the International Festival of Glass in Europe for the first time.
Tanya Veit runs two, one and a half day courses:
Beginner/Intermediate Class (Monday and Tuesday):
The first day will cover kiln basics, firing modes, glass cutting, safety etc. with a one hour lecture at the start of class. Dichroic glass will also be discussed in depth. Moving into the fusing projects, the students will create a black and white tree of life decal pendant. The second day will include creating jewellery pendants using techniques such as decals, etching, dichroic glass and a 5” x 5” tile will also be created.
Intermediate/Advanced Class (Wednesday and Thursday):
Tanya will be teaching innovative techniques such as engraving glass pendants, layering and color shading scenic pendants, using glass paints and the famous “Picasso” technique. This one is not to miss! Tanya’s work can be found in over 150 galleries worldwide, and now she will teach you the very same techniques!
