Glass Summer Session 3
June 19–July 1
Sum of the Parts
The focus of this workshop is making hollow and solid shapes on Penland’s beautiful glassblowing lathe and then putting them together at the torch. We’ll cover lathe safety and maintenance and different ways to set up torches. Our primary glass will be borosilicate but other COEs can be explored as well. With lots of individual instruction, we’ll emphasize experimentation and developing your ideas. Bring your sketchbooks, and come have some fun in the Penland flameworking studio! All levels.
