Instructor: Sally Prasch
This will be a wonderful class covering both a bit of science and artistic glass. Using primarily borosilicate glass we will cover sculpture, flowers, murrini, musical instruments, glass chains and many more possibilities. We will also learn how to incorporate scientific glassblowing techniques including side, ring and blind seals into our work. History of working with glass over a torch will be covered and we'll take a field trip to a scientific glassblowing shop. With lots of individual attention, you are encouraged to bring sketches and ideas and we will see where it takes us. Emphasis will be on exploration, spontaneity, investigation, and fun. Open to all skill levels.
