Program for the course in stained glass

 

Introduction part:

It is a lecture, presenting the technic and the technology for making a stained glass. The lecture is excellently visualizated with a slideshow.

The stained glass is an applied art, known in Europe from the roman and gothic times, but there are some excellent pieses form arabian artists as well. The stained glass is worked out from colored glass and it is ment for windows or other architectural elements with light comming through them, because their most powerfull impact is reached with the different degree of transperancy and color of the glass.

The technic, we are going to work with is called "Tiffany" - technology created in the end of 19th century and called after its creator Louis Comfort Tiffany. Every single piece of glass is framed with a cupper strip and afrerwards all of the elements are soldered togather. With this technic are worked out windows, doors, lamps, brackets and different decorative objects.

Practical part:

Every student will work out a stained glass on his own at his choise from several, given from the instructor, appropriate variants.

Final part:

Short final lecture (conferance), with the purpose of general conclusion of the reached from the students results.

The cource ends up with a treat with a glass of wine from the one that won the prise: "The best homemade wine in Sandanski 2012". It is made by the artist Rumen Bozhinov, called "The king of the wine".
