Once you have mastered basic glassblowing forms, you can take your designs to the next level by exploring compound shapes. In this class we will go through form exploration and take basic geometric shapes and transform them by playing with scale, proportion, stacking, and color. We will use the basic hand tools in new ways, creating jigs to manipulate the glass into its desired form. We will approach the set up of a bubble and make drawings to plan out each step before going into the hot shop.
This is an intermediate/advanced glassblowing class. You should have 1-2 years of experience, and feel comfortable gathering and moving through the steps of making a basic cup. Don’t feel ready yet? Check out our more introductory classes to build your skills.
