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 be exploring, which include: bending/twisting borosilicate tubing while maintaining an even wall weight, Butt seals and Dieter (Jesus) seals, to create artistic manipulated hollow forms. Some flamework experience is recommended; however, all levels are welcome to join the fun!
