Tops, blown feet, and joining bits will be broken down into smaller steps that will create a foundation to build upon. The second half of the course will cover making stems, building the goblet off the pipe, and garage use. More general topics such as working thin and understanding heat will also be addressed as they apply to goblets. Sorry no bit work. I don't quite have a handle on that... yet

In this course students will learn a different way to approach kilnformed glass. This class will cover construction methods for five pattern bar techniques including suspended flow bars, precisely composed blocks and hand formed rolls that will produce wildly varied effects. We will cover containing glass, volume calculations and firing schedules. Through multiple firings, a new understanding of how to achieve controlled patterning will lead to assembling a new body of work. Students will gain confidence in their cutting and finishing skills as well as increasing their understanding of how and why glass behaves the way it does in the kiln. You will leave the class with a minimum of 3 finished pieces and several parts to incorporate into your work at a later time. All skill levels are welcome. Those that are more advanced will likely absorb more technical information but a beginner will be able to follow the simple steps to a complicated process. Includes all materials and kiln firings for projects created in class.

This class will focus on design aspects of functional glass vessels using flameworking techniques. Three types of vessels will be explored: goblets, teapots, and pipes. Students will design and execute pieces that combine strong aesthetics with good function to create unique, original forms. There will be in-depth discussion of historical design aspects of each type of vessel to establish a baseline for creating new designs. There will be extensive hands-on instruction and direction from the instructor and assistant to help the students achieve their designs. I am very honored to have Seattle artist Jared Betty (@jredglass) as my assistant. Some flameworking experience is required for this class.

In this workshop, students will learn how to cast glass by sculpting forms out of clay, pouring refractory molds around the forms, removing the clay and melting glass back into the empty cavity, in kilns. Hands-on time, in addition to daily demonstrations and lectures on mold making, loading kilns, firing schedules, and finishing pieces in the cold shop, will round out this in-depth course on kiln-casting. At the end of the course students should feel confident in continuing to work independently with this process, through the use of their own studio, at Pratt as an independent user, or a combination of the two. In addition, there will be an introduction to lost-wax casting, for those interested in learning about more complicated castings. A field trip off campus will include visits to local studios and galleries. Come prepared, as day one will kick off with sculpting forms out of clay! All skill levels are encouraged to apply.

Learn small-scale reductive techniques for creating jewelry forms such as beads, rings, and pendants, as well as cabochon- and cameo-style elements. Through exercises and supervised work time, students will develop safe and efficient carving skills suitable for use with a range of materials. We will work primarily in wood, with some exploration of wax, plastic, tagua, and bone. Although the emphasis is on hand tools, demos will also cover drills, burs, and power saws. Pratt will have on hand some carving tools for class use, but students may want to provide their own small selection, and will receive guidance in class in choosing the right tools for their goals. Expect to leave with a range of samples and 1-2 wearable pieces. Prerequisite: None

This is your invitation to a guided tour of my exploration of a medium. I have spent all of my adult life discovering, rediscovering, learning about, innovating, and sewing tiny glass beads one to the next. With this class, I offer you anything that we can fit into the time we have together. I encourage students to come with a curious open mind and ideas of their own. I enjoy the process of figuring things out so "out of the box" questions are encouraged. I am as interested in "why" as I am in "how," and I hope you will be too. Lets have a conversation about this medium and discover something together. My classes evolve in response to the interests of the students, but possible topics to be discussed are: -covering complex forms -the many permutations of Right Angle Weave -wrong angle weave -geometric shapes -combining Right Angle Weave with other stitches -incorporating armature -narrative beadwork -contemporary art/ancient medium? what are the possibilities -writing about your work Right Angle Weave is the technique I am most attached to and while I am willing to use/teach other techniques as needed, students are strongly, (not weakly), encouraged to be familiar with the basic flat form of this stitch prior to class. Prerequisite: basic knowledge of right angle weave is strongly recommended.

On day two, you'll cut, trim, and sand your bent-wood creation, or make another mold. Bring your ideas, drawings, and designs, and see how you can bend wood.
