Bend, Slump, Drape

November 11th - December 16th
Jane Bruce |

Using heat and gravity, glass can be shaped over and into molds in a kiln to create an almost endless variety of forms from functional to sculptural. Moving away from commercial molds, this class will look at various way’s students can fabricate molds to create personalized forms in glass. Using an assortment of Bullseye colored sheet glass, frits and powders (crushed glass) and thin canes, students will create fused and non-fused shapes to slump into, bend or drape over their molds. The possibilities are endless when creating your own molds. This class is suitable for those with no experience as well as those who wish to widen their kiln working skills.

This class will not meet on November 25

What to Expect: Students will create 3-6 works along with several experiments, no bigger than 10” in any direction, utilizing available sheet glass, frit, and powders. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page.
