In this practice-based class, Lucia will teach traditional techniques for mixing glass powder with a medium and how to apply it with a brush on glass. Participants will gain a detailed insight into one of Italy´s most extraordinary crafts. The class will also present classical Italian motifs, as well as allowing participants to realise their own creative ideas.
Lucia Santini was born in Murano in 1960. She started to work with glass when she was 15 painting the micro bottles her father made, as he was a glass maker in a factory, a hot shop, and a torch worker. Lucia would then resell the painted bottles in shops around the islands. When she completed her studies, she went to work in a laboratory for glass painting and started to learn the first elements of the true traditional use of glass enamels. She has since worked in various studios to learn as many different techniques as she could. Nowadays, Lucia works in her own studio in Murano, often collaborating with artists such as Lucio Bubacco and Emilio Santina. She has taught Venetian Glass Painting techniques at The Corning Studio N.Y., as well as in private studios.
