The Cool Side of Glass – Carving the Block

July 7th - July 9th
Jane Bruce |

Starting with a colorful block of glass, students will be introduced to a wide range of Cold Shop equipment to create small scale objects and sculptures by carving their block. 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.
