While honing your skills is an integral part of being a glassblower, it is also important to take a moment to step away from techniques and allow yourself some room for new discoveries. Through technical skill building exercises and mini experiments, students will challenge themselves in finding their own perfect harmony between technique and expression. We will all ask ourselves the question, “what if I do this to glass?” and pursue our own individual wonders about the material. Working in this class environment will allow us to help each other in the process of troubleshooting. We will assist each other in refining ideas to completion. Demonstrations will include a mix of fundamental and unorthodox glass forming techniques. We will consider the pros and cons of different ways to put together smaller parts to construct a bigger piece. Bring your wild ideas that you have about glass, and be expressive in this fun and creative class setting.
We will learn how to use the garage and hot torch properly to help us with hot glass construction. This class is suitable for students with beginning or intermediate level of experience in glassblowing. This class will give the students the opportunity to work towards finding their own voice in glass.
