Immerse yourself in the art of pulling stringers and mastering the compression technique. With a rod of colored glass, learn to focus the flame on a small section and slowly pull it into a spaghetti strand of color that can be used in a number of different applications. The strands of Borosilicate (hard) glass can be used to create letters, numbers, and line drawings as well as simulate fireworks-style visual explosions. Ultimately, stringers and compression pieces can be manipulated into marbles, pendants, figurines, and so much more. Learn to control the flame and work effectively with color to achieve a wide variety of effects.
Class tuition includes 2 hours of open-studio time to be used during the 8-week course period. This will help you become familiar with the studio itself and learn the process of studio rental beyond class hours.
