Instructor: František Janák
This class will teach step-by-step how to create small glass sculptures from a solid block of glass using coldworking techniques such as glass shaping, grinding, smoothing, polishing, engraving and gluing components with UV glue. We will also cover how to work with many different tools and media including Czech-made diamond, stone and resin wheels and how to properly treat them. We will build foundations of professional craftsmanship and art work. You will also learn how to design the perfect cold shop. The Czech Republic is the country where coldworking earned its long and strong tradition and your instructor has more than 50 years of experience in this field. No previous coldworking experience is required, although experienced students are very welcome and may learn more than they have ever expected.
