What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

This class will meet three times to allow for multiple firings and the introduction of cold working techniques to enhance and finish individual works. In the first session of the class, students will learn to create a murrini pattern bar with its own unique design. In the second session class will learn to cut up, grind and reassemble the mosaic slices for a further firing. Finally in the third session, students will refine and finish their made object for presentation.

This workshop includes a short presentation on historical and contemporary kilnformed mosaic glass, complimenting the hands-on work.

Murrini cane is a generic term for glass cane or bars that have an image or a design in its cross section. The creation of murrini canes is one of the earliest glassmaking techniques known and many objects using this method date back to Egyptian times.

This class is also suitable for those who have taken other introductory kilnformed glass classes and wish to further their kilnforming skills. Artists from other media, particularly textiles, are encouraged to enroll in this class.
