This class will investigate modern ultraviolet laminating possibilities with glass. Students will explore basic coldworking techniques including cutting, grinding, and polishing combined with UV laminating processes and tools to create glass sculptures. Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on work, we will discuss the chemistry involved in UV polymerization, the addition of dyes to the adhesive for vibrant color options, and explore how modern advancements in UV technology allow for fast curing. Basic coldworking skills would be helpful, but are not a requirement.
