What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

A basic knowledge of cold working techniques can help right many wrongs created in the kilns or hot shop. However, when explored for their own inherent value and integrated into an artist’s menu of glass working techniques, they can be used to enhance and extend works to a new level. 

This class will connect you to the possibilities available when the cold working of an object is considered as an integral part of the creative process. Working though the typical equipment found in a cold shop, we will explore grinding, polishing, engraving, wheel cutting, sandblasting and hand finishing. 

Glass blanks will be provided; however, you are encouraged to bring two or three of your own glass objects to work on. A short presentation on historical and contemporary cold worked glass will compliment hands-on work and handouts outlining machine usage will be provided for future reference.

Please Note:
