 Emma Borland in Studio

Emma Borland Workshop


Date: Saturday 5 December
Time: 9:30am – 4pm
Cost: $250 per person
Skill Level: Beginners to Advanced


This workshop will give an introduction to the way in which Emma makes her glass panels. Her approach is informed by her own history as an artist.
In her designs she uses blocks of glass that are arranged to present the finished forms. This process is a synthesis from her time as a stained glass maker and her early work in collage. She uses frits and powders to develop fine details and builds up the work by running multiple firings that control the sharpness of silhouettes and the texture of the finished work.

In this one-day workshop you will design and make a glass panel following the process Emma has developed. You will begin with the design process and the use of “cartoons” to develop your forms. Once the designs are complete you will learn a number of ways to cut and shape the glass. With the basic shapes created you will then learn how to use frits and powders to add detail to your finished artwork.
Your artwork will be fired during the night following the course and should be ready for collection on the next day. To book please call 6260 7005, or email
