Follow Megan O'Hara's step-by-step guide to create this detailed feather pattern. 

A lifetime access course, you can watch as many times as you like, for as long as you like.  

Welcome to the Glass School's Learn At Your Own Pace Education! Learn from the comfort of your own home or studio via our step-by-step videos. Here we are showing a project for a Feather Pattern.

Welcome to Feather Pattern, the perfect way to follow along with Megan O'Hara in using pattern bars to make a unique piece! We will be working with multiple layers of sheet glass, blending lots of colours, and using a trim saw to cut your glass into parts, exposing the cross-sectional pattern within. The different components will be developed into your own composition of one or many feathers. The project may also inspire you to design and compose your own sectional piece and help you in deciding what coloured glass will work together.
