Refining Form & Color


June 22 - July 3, 2020
Two-Week Session

The first week of this intermediate workshop will focus on refining students’ skills by working on clear, simple forms such as tumblers, cylinders, bowls, and bottles. Students will practice working efficiently, improving heat control, and surveying basic blowing theories. During the second week, students will use these skills and apply them to color techniques, such as basic color overlays, an introduction to cane work, encalmo, and other decorative processes. 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.
