Summer Glass Workshops
This workshop is filled on a first come basis until the participant maximum is met. Once the class limit is reached, a waiting list will be kept.
This three week session will focus on form and forming techniques using blown glass elements. The primary blown forms such as the sphere, cylinder, and cone will be explored as a primary skill set. Students then will begin to develop a language of functional forms using this geometric foundation and the inherent material properties of clear and colored glass. Open to all levels.
Our glass facilities currently have a two thousand pound capacity continuous melt furnace for clear glass, a 1200 pound capacity furnace for colored glass, three large glory holes and twenty annealing ovens, all computer controlled.
