Refining Form


August 24 - 29, 2020
One-Week Session

In this intermediate glassblowing course, the objectives will be to build a solid foundation, refine skills, work more efficiently, and establish an understanding of how working on a small scale can translate into larger works.

Students will work in clear glass, focusing on basic forms such as the tumbler, cylinder, bowl, and bottle, moving methodically from one shape to the next. Instruction will be personalized to build on individual skills, and one-on-one time will be given to help find simple solutions to common struggles. Blow partners will rotate daily, offering students a unique opportunity to learn from and build relationships with each of their classmates. One year of glassblowing experience is required.
