Glass Summer Session 6
August 8-19, 2021
Say Something with Glass
This innovative workshop will be an introduction to the Venetian glass cane technique called murrine. Using the classic Franchini technique, students will work with soft glass to create simple and intricate murrine patterns, letters, and images. These elements will then be made into beads, pendants, rings, and other solid forms. Carefully considering design principles and elements, students will execute projects that combine multiple glass pieces at the torch. By the end of the workshop, students will have made several unique pieces using flameworking, fusing, and coldworking. Soft glass only. All levels. Flame studio.
