Join us Sunday May 6th at 11a for our new Image Transfer onto Glass Workshop with Chelsea Hiatt Farley of Cuppa Fog. For this workshop she will teach you how to transfer images onto glass! You will go home with 4 glass pieces that can be used as coasters or hung on a wall or in a window. This same technique can be used to transfer images onto mirrors. 

In this class, Chelsea will teach you: Glass preparation, image transfer application, removal of paper, finishing techniques, sealant method, and how to apply hardware onto the back of your new art. 

Image Transfer onto Glass Workshop Includes:

-Four square (4 inch x 4 inch) glass transfers (two images you will complete in class, and the other two you will start in class and take home to finish)

-Vintage-themed San Francisco photos or 4 of your own images*

-All art materials and finishing hardware

*If you use our provided vintage-themed San Francisco photos the cost is $75, but if you'd like to customize it more you can use your own photos for $90. If you are using your own photos we recommend choosing good contrast and high resolution digital files (minimum of 1MB, please do not pull off of social media sites as they are too compressed). We advise you to stay away from portraits (people or animal), as they are tougher to make sure the distressing doesn’t happen over important parts like faces. Please email pictures to hello@gathersf.com by Tuesday May 2nd.

Chelsea Hiatt Farley has made a business of transferring her photos on to wood with her company Cuppa Fog for the past 6 years and her Image Transfer to Wood Workshop is one of our most popular classes at gather. We carry her beautiful San Francisco-themed pieces in the shop. She is constantly inspired taking photos of our beautiful San Francisco and the coast, and loves how the image transfer process brings additional texture and storytelling to her photographs. 

This two hour class also includes mimosas and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that day. No experience needed- all levels welcome!

Registration closes at midnight on Wednesday May 2nd for custom pictures ($90) and Saturday May 5th for SF themed option ($75).
