Youth Camp! Molten Madness: Introduction to Glassblowing

July 22nd - July 26th
Joshua Raiffe |

Designed for students of all ages, this introductory glassblowing class focuses on experimental processes in the hot shop. Before students begin inventing and developing new and innovative ways of working with glass they will need a basic foundation of skills to work with. Once students have acquired these basic skills, they will begin to deconstruct traditional methods of manipulating glass and begin to discover and explore the material through a raw and unfiltered lens. There are so many techniques and processes we take for granted as usual and necessary which leads to a conformity of work produced. This class aims to harness the genius behind young minds which have not yet been inundated by formalities and expectations. Ages 11-18.
