August 10 - 15, 2020
All Levels
One-Week Session

This class will teach students how to create sculptures and vessels in colored borosilicate glass. Pieces will be made using various sculpting techniques, and methods for blowing hollow forms such as stoppered bottles, ornaments, beads, and jewelry will be explored. The instructors will demonstrate cane decoration and patterns; different ways of using commercial colors, gold, and silver fuming; and techniques for hand mixing color from oxide formulas. Students are encouraged to come with ideas of interesting subjects in mind, or problems to solve. This class uses borosilicate (hard) glass. No glassworking experience is required; advanced students also are welcome.
