Instructor: Chaiah Sullivan
In this class, we will use nature as our inspiration to take an idea from concept to reality. Starting with a design, we will plan out all the steps to create your beautiful nature scene. Each day will have demonstrations followed by hands-on practice to create an inventory of components, both solid and hollow, which you will then assemble into your final piece (or pieces) of art. There are often many different ways to achieve each step. Through open discussion, we will learn how to properly plan ahead for designing and executing the piece. This class will be a study in nature, focusing on the intricacies all around us - cacti, leaves, flowers, vines, and roots, for example. You are encouraged to bring sketchbooks for both design and note taking. We will cover a wide range of techniques including, shaping, sculpting, tubulation, different color applications, handmade glass-on-glass fittings, proper flame use, flower prep and assembly, advanced seals, and much more.
