Molten glass is like honey; it drips, stretches, and expands in unexpected ways. Students will learn the fundamentals of glassblowing and how to shape this unique material as it transforms from a molten, liquid blob to a final form at different temperatures. With safety talks, demonstrations, and practice, camp will cover proper tool use and how to work in teams to create finished works of art. Students will gain confidence working in a professional studio as they create colorful designs progressing from solid forms to hollow objects.
No experience necessary. Open to all rising and current high school students.
