The Vocabulary of Heat


August 3 - 8, 2020
One-Week Session

Learning to blow glass is often an exercise in confronting the awkwardness of the process, co-mingled with a dense technical vocabulary. This class is for students who are beginning to find their footing in a hot glass studio, but would like to reinforce basic skills. Studying the principles of the material will aid in the understanding of glassblowing.

The mechanics of how glassblowers move through the glass studio correlate to the amount of time they have to work with the heat of the glass. Students will learn to work at a faster pace and develop muscle memory through the repetition of basic shapes. The wealth of history and information in the Museum collections and the Rakow Research Library will be incorporated daily into the curriculum. Some glassblowing experience is required.
