The Madison County Historical Society offers a reverse glass art workshop


ONEIDA – Join reverse glass painting specialist Anne Dimock as she teaches the step-by-step process for creating reverse glass art at the Madison County Historical Society’s (MCHS) Heritage Handicrafts Workshop: 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 way that when the glass is turned over, the paint is visible through the glass and on the other side. The painting is done in such a way that the work can be viewed from any angle when the glass is rotated.

The MCHS Reverse Glass Workshop is part of a series of arts-hobby workshops designed
engage and involve participants in the fine arts and crafts activities common in the 19th century. This year, MCHS is collaborating with artist members of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration (HSEAD) who will lead a series of workshops at MCHS.

HSEAD is a national, nonprofit organization whose mission is to perpetuate and expand the unique skills and knowledge of Old American decorating through educational workshops, research, publications, and exhibits. The company researches and reproduces decorative objects 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 MCHS, 435 Main Street, Oneida. The cost of the workshop is $25 for MCHS members and $30 for non-members.
