Our FALL 2016 Line-up is....
MONDAYS 6:30-9:30pm: "IN LIVING COLOR"
BEGINNER II/ SIX WEEKS/ $660 /STARTS SEPT 12th
We are going to start off the year with a fun intro/ refresher to various color techniques. We will be wrapping, and raking, and wrapping some more, and trying out color overlays, and making shards and stringers and springs, and much more. We will keep our shapes simple so we can focus on the technique and hand skills it takes to master them while still making colorful and interesting pieces.
TUESDAYS 6:30-9:30pm: "DROP IT LIKE ITS HOT"
INTERMEDIATE I/ SIX WEEKS/ $660/ STARTS SEPT 13th
What are the first two tools you are going to use when you take a gather? The marver? The blocks? Wrong! Your very first tools are heat and gravity, and we are going to spend our six weeks exploiting this to our advantage starting with your very first gather. We will make "NO MARVER" cups and roman bottles and work our way to some friendly competition by the end of the session regarding SIZE and SPEED. I loved how focused you all got on the pull-tip cups last session, and this session will refine your basics so we can revisit that soon.
WEDNESDAYS6:30-930pm: "FROM THE KILN TO THE FURNACE"
INTERMEDIATE II/ SIX WEEKS/ $660/ STARTS SEPT 14th
We are going to be cutting and designing cold flat glass to make elements to incorporate in our blown work. We will explore everything from simply arranging some geometric designs to roll up on your bubble, to actually heating the flat glass up to create complex cane blocks, quick canes & jelly rolls (you'll see), and rolling-up flat glass to make murrine.
FRIDAYS6:30-9:30pm: "GLASSBLOWING 101"
BEGINNER I/ THREE WEEKS/ $330/ STARTS SEPT 30th
This is your chance to try glassblowing. This class can be the next step for any student that has taken a weekend workshop or the first step for some one who wants to learn the basics of blowing glass. After a refresher/ introduction on how to gather, marver, and blow a bubble, we will focus our time on team work and making drinking vessels. No experience necessary.
