Introduction to Glass Blowing


Introduction to glass blowing will focus on the basic principles of glass blowing. Each weekend the class will concentrate on a particular aspect such as solid forming blown forms, vessels, and color application. Students will be led through a series of demonstrations of tools and techniques to help participants understand the principles of glass blowing and glass sculpture. Each student will have the chance to work one-on-one with an instructor creating finished work to take home.
