February 13th - February 27th

Curious about making your own glass color? This class will cover the basics of glass chemistry and color making. Students will learn about a variety of glass colorants and the different mechanisms by which they create color, and participate in formulating and mixing three different colors from batch and raw material. The second half of the class will cover methods to determine annealing temperature, compatibility and approximate coefficient of expansion using tools available in the hot shop.

This workshop will be held entirely over Zoom, and class times are listed in Eastern Standard Time. To register for a free zoom account, visit
