Tangled Up In Tubes

All Levels
Three-Day Workshop

In this special, three-day weekend course, students will create a variety of fun, micro-marble mazes of twisted and tangled freeform shapes in borosilicate tubing. While no specific form will be the target, students are encouraged to arrive with design concepts in mind, utilizing the main skills the class will explore, including: bending/twisting borosilicate tubing while maintaining an even wall weight, Butt seals and Dieter (Jesus) seals, to create artistic manipulated hollow forms. This class uses borosilicate (hard) glass. Some flamework experience is recommended; however, all levels are welcome to join the fun!

For the wellbeing of all students and staff, The Studio workshops have been modified, class capacity has been reduced, and sanitizing and social distancing protocols have been introduced. Detailed information about these measures can be found on The Studio Health and Safety page.
