Faux Stained Glass Community Workshop
January 9 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Artist Keith Wilde will meet with Scholars and Cultural Bearers to conduct research for ‘narratives’ to be rendered. Follow up w/ scholars to review ‘narratives’ and adjustments made if necessary.
Volunteers will be oriented to the space & art making tools, learn about their role in the MZ project & receive a lesson in making faux stained glass. Keith Wilde and MZ staff will lead the orientation. A large, to scale contour map of mural design will be projected on a wall. The map, much like the paint by numbers map, is coded w/ an assigned color pallet for each shape. Volunteers will select a shape to create.
Volunteer then chooses a piece of polytab, a paintable synthetic fabric, go to a painting station & use the color pallet assigned to their shape. They will fill in shape with paint using a variety of tools/techniques and then dry their painted shapes.
Volunteers will then cut shapes to fit size of projected contour drawing and then place that shape on the wall and use the projection to trace the actual shape onto their painted panel. They have then created a faux-stained- glass tile which they will glue onto the appropriate space w/n the black polytab panel. Follow this development and later in Activity 2, these panels will be installed completing the faux stained-glass boarders for the murals.
Volunteers will assist with the clean-up and will be able to see their section of the mural completed. They will be thanked AND celebrated for their contribution.
This event is part of a project that was funded in part by an Ohio Humanities Ignite Grant.
