GLASS SUMMER SESSION 7
AUGUST 13–18, 2023
This workshop will cover fundamental techniques of glassblowing, bit work, and hot sculpting. Demonstrations, focused projects, individual coaching, planning, and reflective discussion will help students build skills from any level of engagement. Central to the workshop will be practice making essential vessel forms and simple solid figures. Assignments will address important fundamentals for less-experienced students as well as nuanced technical hurdles that come into play for more advanced makers. Drawing on 30 years of problem-solving at the furnace, I will share lessons that will accelerate confidence and skill and help you take your hot-shop game to the next level. All levels. Hot-glass studio.
