Moving With Glass

January 29th - March 4th
Grace Whiteside |

For this introduction to glassblowing course, we will focus on the properties of glass and how it moves in relation to our bodies and surroundings. Glassblowing is about reaching a greater understanding of the effects that temperature and gravity have on the viscosity of the material. If we quit turning the pipe, the glass will fall to the floor. If the glass gets cold, it will no longer be malleable. This course will cover the basics of glassblowing as well as challenge the properties of the material. How far can we stretch glass? What are its breaking points?  We will be experimental in our practices, allowing glass to do what it does best: move. 

No experience necessary.
