~please note that a one-day workshop will not qualify you for the skill level in the classes below~
The classes below are for experienced students only. There are no online sign ups for these classes. If you are joining us with experience from a different studio we highly recommend working one on one with an instructor before requesting to be in a class. This is to ensure that you are placed in the appropriate class for your skill level when a spot opens up.
Requests are first come first servewith priority given to students that were signed up for the previous session. Although we wish we could accommodate everyone, these classes often fill quickly with returning students. If you miss out, reach out to us about private lessons! Please be patient with our slow response time after classes are announced as we let the requests come in before getting back to everyone.
"DO IT RIGHT" w/ Shannon Floyd TUESDAYS 6:30-9:30pm: LEVEL: EXPERIENCED BEGINNER STARTS SEPTEMBER 12th (6 WEEKS) COST: $690 This is going to be a "do it right or do it over" class to really solidify our basic skills. Starting with gathering and blowing out bottom weighted spheres into various cup shapes. Working under time restraints will get you working faster and hotter with lots of repetition leading to more all around success!
"ON THIN ICE" w/ Emery Wenger WEDNESDAYS: 6:30-9:30pm: LEVEL: ADVANCED BEGINNER/ INTERMEDIATE STARTS SEPTEMBER 13th (6 WEEKS) COST: $690 In this class we will explore techniques to make thin-walled objects with delicate transparency. After experimenting with our traditional style of glassblowing, we will learn the "pull-tip" method to allow us to make our cups thinner and with more speed. Repetition will be key to building confidence as we learn these new Venetian tricks and eventually work our way up to the optic twist. No matter what level you are when you start this class you are bound to leave this session with a deeper understanding and lots of muscle memory.
"CAN YOU HANDLE IT?" w/ DJ Benyosef THURSDAYS: 6:30-9:30pm: LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE STARTS SEPTEMBER 14th (6 WEEKS) COST: $690 This class will focus on traditional shapes that lend themselves to handle applications. Throughout the 6 weeks we will cover an assortment of handles from traditional and fully functional and meant to to actually hold a vessel, to fancy and decorative and merely meant to jazz up a piece. Teamwork will be a major focal point as we all learn how to create, heat, and deliver the right bit for the right application.
