Glass A Summer Session 2

JUNE 4–16, 2023
Joe Grant
Glass Smorgasbord

This workshop will explore a variety of techniques for using glass as an artist’s material. While students should already be able to gather, shape, and make simple forms with molten glass, we’ll assess, review, and expand on those fundamental skills. Then we’ll explore solid sculpting, bit working, assembling parts, color applications, and mold blowing. We’ll combine traditional and experimental approaches to help develop your artistic practice; each student will be able to pursue what interests them most. The workshop will include demonstrations, skill-building exercises, and a focus on individual practice. We’ll stress teamwork, thinking outside the box, and using glass in unique ways. Advanced beginning level: at least one previous glassblowing workshop required. Hot glass studio.
