--Venetian Style of Working--
In this class, we will emphasize various off hand glassmaking disciplines focusing primarily on the Venetian style of working. There will be many demonstrations and discussions in a relaxed, casual atmosphere and our individual interests can be explored.
-- Flameworking extravaganza! --
Students’ inherent creativity will be stimulated in this course, which focuses on building a solid foundation of technical skill at the torch. Working with soda-lime (Moretti) and borosilicate glass, students of all levels will learn a wide variety of flameworking techniques using rod and tubing.
Demonstrations will range from beadmaking to scientific glassblowing and include unusual twists for creating visual impact. Assignments and individual projects will help students develop a personal language of color and shape for expressing ideas in art.
