This workshop gives students an opportunity to explore the exciting medium of blown glass. Each weekend the class will concentrate on a particular aspect such as blowing bubbles, vessel making, or color application. Students will be led through a series of demonstrations of tools and techniques to help them understand the principles of glass blowing and glass sculpture. The class will then try out the techniques as a group. Each student will have the chance to work one on one with an instructor, creating a finished piece to take home. Students are encouraged to bring their own ideas, a lot of energy, and patience.
Students must wear closed toe shoes, long sleeve cotton shirts, and thick cotton or denim long pants.
