Next Steps in Glassblowing
October 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 16, 2022
A strong foundation is key to developing thoughtful and technically refined pieces when glass blowing in the hot shop. This workshop will emphasize the importance of building positive habits and solid hand skills. Students will focus on gathering glass, wall thickness, speed, ergonomics, and heat in order to create well-designed and elegant vessels. This course will emphasize individual attention and instruction divided between demonstrations and supervised work time. This class is ideal for students who have minimal to basic glassblowing skills, not for true beginners. Students should have taken at least one beginning glassblowing class prior to this course.
Registration includes access to Student Open Blow on Friday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. during the class run time (October 14 – November 18).
