Madison County Historical Society offers reverse glass art workshop

Posted

ONEIDA — Join reverse glass painting specialist Anne Dimock as she teaches the step-by-step process to create reverse glass art at the Madison County Historical Society’s (MCHS) Heritage Handicrafts: Reverse Glass Workshop from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 18.

Creating the art involves painting a piece of glass in such a manner that when the glass is turned over, the painting is visible through the glass and from the reverse side. The painting is done so the artwork can be viewed from any angle as the glass is turned.

MCHS’s Reverse Glass Workshop is part of a series of leisure-arts workshops designed
to engage and involve participants in fine arts and crafts activities common in the 19th century. This year the MCHS is collaborating with the Historical Society of Early American Decoration (HSEAD) member artists who will be leading a series of workshops at the MCHS.

HSEAD is a not-for-profit national organization whose mission is to perpetuate and expand the unique skills and knowledge of Early American Decoration through educational workshops, research, publishing, and exhibitions. The society researches and reproduces decorative items found in homes in the early 1800s.

The Reverse Glass Workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 18 at the MCHS, 435 Main Street, Oneida. The cost for the workshop is $25 for MCHS members and $30 for nonmembers.

All materials will be provided. This workshop is for adults and children aged 13 years and up. Prepackaged, single-serve snacks and light refreshments will be offered.

Space is limited to 10 participants and registration is required. To register for the workshop, call 315-363-4136, e-mail history@mchs1900.org, or go online to www.mchs1900.org.
