This class will review the basic history of mirroring including the basic chemistry and how it has affected the glass art industry. We will demystify the process of mirroring with hands on instruction making a flat silver mirror as well as a blown glass deep, black Galena Mirror. Students will also explore other ways to modify mirrors including antiquing and some Angel Gilding exclusive techniques. All materials and glass needed for the class will be provided. Students are invited to also bring their own square foot piece of glass to silver/modify. No experience necessary.
Angel Gilding is a small, family company dedicated to sharing their knowledge and products pertaining to making and modifying mirrors. Started after a long quest to unearth the art of gold mirrors in the historic Chicago Bungalows, Angel Gilding is committed to sharing their knowledge and taking the mystery out of the mirroring process. Join us for this hands on class where its better than magic… it’s science!
