Heather Trimlett – Practical Uses for Twisted Canes
ABOUT HEATHER TRIMLETT
The glass and history of Lauscha, Germany have long inspired the incredible work of Heather Trimlett, particularly with twisted cane. For nearly 25 years, she has developed and used designs with diverse textures, distinct application, and juxtaposition of color to create her intricate twist patterns.
WHAT YOU'LL MAKE
Spend two full days learning to apply twists to your beads, make a button from a twist (psst…this will include learning to pierce glass with a tungsten pick), marble making…the perfect flameworked “manly” gift, and a few surprises. All glass will be provided by Third Degree. If you have colors that you love, bring them along. If you have tools bring them along, but please make sure they are clearly marked.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
In this dynamic workshop, Heather will share her love of twisted glass while introducing patterns beyond imagination. You will advance your skillset, bring precision to your work, and expand your ability to understand and define the fine art of heat control.
