A Moving Solid: Introduction to Glassblowing

March 21st - April 25th
Romina Gonzales |

This class will serve as a platform to engage with the counterintuitive characteristics of molten glass as it moves through different states of matter. Students will be introduced to the hot shop, learning safety in the studio, and beginning their journey with this unusual material. Students will learn hand and body skills to move fluidly in the studio and shape the glass into solid and blown, sculptural and functional, objects. Learning will revolve around drills and exercises while embracing full creative freedom. Be ready to play and experiment with this foreign material! Open to all levels.
