The Cool Side of Glass - Carving the Block

April 5th - April 7th
Jane Bruce |

In this 3 day intensive class , students will be given a clear or multi-colored block of Bullseye glass, and will be introduced to a wide range of Cold Shop equipment to carve the block into a small scale sculpture.  Areas covered will include sawing, grinding and polishing, drilling, wheel cutting, wheel and flexible shaft engraving, sandblasting and hand lapping. Each of these techniques allow for an array of possibilities when creating in the cold shop. Hands on work will be complemented by a short presentation on historical and contemporary cold worked glass.

This class meets on Friday 6-9pm and Saturday + Sunday 11am-5pm. 

What to Expect: Class time will alternate between demonstration and work time. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page.
