What you'll learn in this glass blowing class:

This intermediate glassblowing intensive will focus on the importance of the set-up shape to successfully blow forms in the hot shop. We will pay special attention to temperature and material distribution of the hot glass, to gain better control.

Exercises will cover the basic steps such as gathering, popping bubbles, marvering, jacklines, punties, etc, while having an open dialogue regarding the difficulties we have encountered with these processes in the past. We will emphasize the team aspect of glassblowing, acknowledging the need for a blow partner for turning when working at a medium scale and their role in assisting throughout the entire process. 

Additionally, we'll pay special attention to efficiency as we cover different set-ups for making spheres, cylinders, and shallow forms. We will mainly work in clear but color bar use is welcome on the second day if the student has prior experience.
