Glass History
All Levels
Ten-Week Session

This ten-week online class is a unique opportunity to engage with the curators of The Corning Museum of Glass to explore glassworking from antiquity to the present day. Students will explore the galleries with the curators to see historical glassmaking techniques. These techniques will then be demonstrated and explained by The Studio’s resident advisor William Gudenrath. Curators include Katherine Larson, curator of ancient glass, Christopher Maxwell, curator of early modern glass, Alexandra Ruggiero, curator of modern glass, and Susie Silbert, curator of postwar and contemporary glass. This course is ideal for students and artists who want to learn about the history of glassmaking. No glassworking experience is required.

The class will be delivered via weekly video conferences that incorporate presentations, live demonstrations, and class discussions. Classes take place from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST. Students registered for this course should have a reliable internet connection during class hours and a computer or tablet that can support video and audio communication. All students will have an online orientation with Studio staff prior to October 6 to ensure connectivity. For more information, please contact The Studio at +1 (607) 438-5100 or [email protected].
