Make It or Break It: Introduction to Glassblowing

June 30th - August 4th
Romina Gonzales |

This class will take on an experimental approach to learning how to work with hot glass. Exercises will revolve around experiments to test material boundaries through traditional and unconventional processes. Students will gain empirical knowledge through trial, error and observation to then apply when making their own sculptures and vessels. We will work with both solid and blown glass and have a session in the cold shop to additionally manipulate the pieces made through carving, grinding and cutting.  This class is open to beginner and intermediate students who wish to try out unusual ideas and methods.
