Glass Blowing: American-Style Venetian Techniques
June 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
One event on June 4, 2023 at 10:00 am
The Czechs, Swedes, and Germans, among others, all have venerable glass-making traditions. But for artist Jason McDonald the workshops of the Venetian lagoon, particularly in the 16th century, produced some of the finest glass the world has ever known. Join Jason McDonald as he introduces the basics of this working style as understood from an American studio perspective.
This two-day workshop will cover the first steps in blowing thin-footed vessels. As challenging to produce as they are beautiful to look at, the motto of this class will be “fail quickly.” Don’t plan to bring more home from this “crash course” than good working habits that you can apply to your practice, and leave room to surprise yourself!
