Lanterns: Found Art & Assemblage
May 18 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Assemblage is an exciting art form in which we layer elements or “found art” treasures three dimensionally creating a collage that project out of—or on top of—the item such as a canvas, or in this case, the glass doors of our lanterns.
Selecting objects that interest and/or inspire you, you will choose a white or black lantern to use as our substrate on which to glue our “found art” elements. Each lantern is 6”x 6”x 11” and has four glass doors that will be removed, coated with resin, and then our found objects placed into the resin which will then act as the adhesive to keep our objects in place. Once cured/hardened, the resin is completely transparent like glass with our objects held firmly in place. Each lantern will have one set of fairy lights that have 8 different settings and when they are turned on inside the lantern, it illuminates your design from within.
The possibilities are endless as to what you can use to adorn your lanterns: photographs, lace, ribbon, jewelry, puzzle pieces, glass gems, glass gravel, feathers, leaves or pressed flowers, old coins, gears, pins, keys, sand, buttons, whatever! Go with one cohesive theme for all four of your doors or design each door as a separate piece of art—it is your choice!
Although all supplies are included in this class, if you have items you think you may want to incorporate into your design, you are encouraged to bring them along with you.
No previous experience is necessary to participate in this workshop. Minimum age is 16. Class size is limited.
Dress comfortably in old clothing as we are working with resin.
***Please note: Resin requires time to cure so items can not be taken home with you but picked up the next day or when you are able.
Refreshments such as coffee, tea, pop, water and cookies are offered but if you want to bring your own beverage/snack, please do so.
