Glass A Summer Session 3

Glass Summer Session 3
June 21 – July 3, 2020

Exploring Creativity with Cane & Murrini

Students in this workshop will be challenged to subvert the fundamentals of glassblowing and explore their individual interests. We’ll help each other experiment with whatever wild ideas we may have about glass, venturing out from traditional glass vessels. Demonstrations will include using bundles of rods, preheated shards, fused glass chunks, and more as we work to find our own unique methods of shaping molten glass. More technical demonstrations will be given in the latter half of the workshop, including the use of cane and murrini as a way to introduce line and pattern. All levels. Code 03GA
