Glass Summer Session 5
July 19 – August 4, 2020

Gathering Momentum

In this nontraditional hot glass workshop, we’ll embrace an experimental and curious approach to achieve unexpected outcomes with a versatile material. We’ll begin with the fundamentals needed to navigate the hot shop and cold shop, covering techniques in alternative surface applications, cold assembly, and mixed media. With daily demonstrations and plenty of work time for exploration, students will quickly develop a personal vocabulary based on process-driven results. Expect to produce samples and studies focused around texture, color, and form. All levels. Code 05GA
