Glass Summer Session 6
July 31–August 12
Cedric Mitchell and Corey Pemberton
Touch It, Bring It
This introductory workshop will focus on the fundamentals of glassblowing, covering the proper use of equipment and tools and helping students achieve an understanding of the material. We’ll emphasize the basic steps of glassblowing, such as gathering, starter bubbles, punties, heat management, and color application. Students will work on basic forms through the stoic approach of perpetual practice and then explore the endless possibilities of compound forms. If you’re looking to build a strong foundation, this workshop is for you. Come ready to practice radical positivity and teamwork, and turn it up! Beginning level. Hot glass studio.
