Make It Happen!

Students in this introductory workshop will discover the potential for making their ideas come to life in glass. First we’ll develop a strong foundation of glassmaking skills: gathering, shaping, and making simple forms with molten glass. Next we’ll cover solid sculpting, bit working, and blown glass techniques. Finally we’ll explore some basic color applications and moldblowing possibilities. A combination of traditional and experimental approaches to glassmaking will bring your ideas to life. The workshop will include demonstrations and skill building exercises and will focus on individual practice. Beginning level. Code 06GA
