What you'll learn in this glass sculpture class:

In this class, students will learn how to create images and textures on glass in both the hot and cold shops, using these studios to explore a wide array of techniques. Through discussions and planning, we will emphasize design and personal style, and how to translate those ideas to glass. 

In the hot shop, we will cover color overlays and stuff cups as ways to create thoughtfully designed pieces and blanks to take into the cold shop. Using the machines in the cold shop, we will begin with simple techniques then build towards layering of multiple processes. We will cover cold techniques ranging from basic grinding and polishing, sand blasting, and lathe cutting to cameo engraving. Students will learn how to plan complex patterns on flat and three-dimensional glass, and develop problem-solving strategies integrating both studios to execute designs. 

Using design, existing imagery, and patterns, we will widen the scope of possibilities of working with glass. Bad ideas just as welcome as good ones, come ready to play.
