This class elaborates on the techniques covered in the first class and focuses on transitioning into larger, more detailed pieces. Students will learn new ways to advance their form and add simple accents to their pieces. In this two-day class we will create many solid and blown glass objects such as marbles, paperweights, pendants, perfume bottles and wine glasses. We will also experiment with many forms of glass such as dichroic, frit, scalloped tubing and colored tubing. This workshop concentrates on basic and intermediate skills learned in Introduction 1 but provides challenging, yet rewarding, technical instruction for future development.
- 12 hours of studio time including lecture (8 hours for night classes)
- Raw materials- clear and colored rods, tubing, frit, and dichroic
- Information and resources packet
- Use of torches, kiln, oxygen, propane, ventilation, tools and studio space
- Each student will have their own work station to use during the teaching and studio session.
