Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

This workshop delves into the classic glass practice of Murrine. From the ancient Mesopotamia to Venice to new contemporary takes, we will look at the history and techniques of creating original Murrines. Students will use methods discussed and demonstrated (20% demonstration/80% in studio practice) in class to flamework their own design with a focus on creating letters. We will break down each step in the process and there will be some one on one instruction. Everyday we will be able to add a step or more to our main design, growing in size as well as complexity. Glass can talk, what do you want it to say?

What to Expect: On successful completion of this workshop, students will be able to create several unique elements using multiple techniques including some coldworking. Flameworking requires a little practice at heat control with the torch to create successful pieces. After demonstrations, expect to make some successful objects in this class, and a couple failures, while gaining more confidence and skill in the studio.

Additional work time for intensive students: Students will also have access to additional hours in the studio, without instruction, on Wednesday - Saturday from 5-8pm.

Eligibility: Some previous flame work experience is helpful. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight each day, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work if made on the final day.

Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
