Glass A Summer Session 1

Glass Summer Session 1
May 24 – June 5, 2020
Jasen Johnsen & Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen
Hot Glass Sculpting

This workshop will be crammed full of information drawn from our lengthy experience in sculpting glass. We’ll present experimental ways of working glass so ideas can materialize. Demonstrations will include a variety of frit and powder techniques, torch work, and the use of customized tools. We’ll cover blown and solid forms with an emphasis on teamwork and use the garage to construct parts. Students will have time to work out their ideas daily. Plan to work hard and have a blast. Intermediate level: two-years of hot glass experience required. Code 01GA

Collaborating studio artists; teaching: Pratt Fine Arts Center (Seattle), Pilchuck (WA), Red Deer College (Canada); exhibitions: Museum of Northwest Art (WA), Tacoma Museum of Glass (WA), Schack Art Center (WA), solo show at Habatat Galleries (FL); work in museum collections worldwide.
