Molten glass is like honey; it drips, stretches, and expands in unique and unexpected ways. Glassblowing is the ancient artform of manipulating molten glass to create functional and sculptural objects. Students will learn the fundamentals of working with furnace glass, including studio safety, proper tool use, and how to work collaboratively to create finished pieces. Students will practice basic skills, gain confidence in the studio, and work in teams to craft more complex, inventive, colorful forms.
