Glass A Summer Session 1

Glass Summer Session 1
May 29–June 3
Andy Paiko
We’re On Our Own

This workshop will take a look at self-sufficiency in the glass studio. From solo hot-work tips and techniques at the furnace to coldwork and assembly strategies, students will be encouraged to create ambitious, large and/or intricate work they have always wanted to attempt. Topics will include hot assembly alone, adding avolios and blown feet alone, solo punty making, marver-casting simple shapes for hot pick-up, and more. We’ll consider what goes into the whole process from idea generation to cashing the check and every step in between. We’ll encourage each other to become lifelong students when there are no longer instructors. All levels. Hot glass studio.
