Keeping a Glassblowing Sketchbook

November 23rd, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Liesl Schubel |

Glassblowing is a complex process. You must be clear on what you are doing in the moment, and have in mind the next steps to achieve your finished form. An excellent way to visualize these steps is to draw them. Parsing out the details of tool use and angles will help you further understand the logic of how to make a shape. In this class, students will start their own glassblowing sketchbooks, where you can keep notes of process, steps, and jot down inspiration from other glassblowers. 


Materials: 
Drawing implements (pen, paper, marker - whatever you are most comfortable with)
Sketchbook/sketch pad (any size)
