Glass beadmaking is your chance to work with hot glass on a small scale. Learn to melt rods of glass in a propane-oxygen flame, wrap the molten glass onto a mandrel, and then use heat and gravity to shape a round bead. You will pull stringers (thin strings of glass) and use them to decorate your beads with dots, lines and simple flowers. We'll also cover basic torch safety, glass terminology, annealing, and bead cleaning. Prerequisite: None

This class is an opportunity to refine and focus on your own path in glassblowing. Special Projects will allow students to make the class whatever they need to advance their techniques and the way they think about how to get things done, from design to calculations to implementation. Demonstrations will be used minimally to guide students on their personal journeys. Having most or all of the class to explore individual projects will give students ample time to work out kinks and questions in accordance with their own desires. Professional advice and helping hands throughout the classes will give students more bench time and opportunity to discover breakthrough ways of achieving desired results.

 Influentilal art duo CUD (John Drury of Brooklyn, NY and Robbie Miller of Vancouver) return to Seattle and Pratt, to share their unique perspective on 31 years of collaboratively producing art, with glass.

Instruction during this hands-on, fast-paced 5-day class includes the non-traditional exploration and experimentation with glass in its characteristic states - cold, warm and hot. Participants will investigate the direct method of glass mosaic, the firing of enamels on to the surface of glass and spend time in the hot shop – as also informed through the presentation of off-beat examples, of the historical incorporation of the material in creative endeavors.

CUD’s shoot-from-the-hip aesthetic realizes the shortcoming of work based in technical skill alone. Students look outside of the classroom to personal experience and their own environments for strong conceptual basis to their work; with an eye to recycling, technical mash-up and found glass - as avenue to creating truly unique artworks with the versatile material, glass. Interest in process, collaboration, reflection of place, status reversal and pro-active thought are encouraged.

All peoples throughout history have made mosaic and the technique remains fresh (and frankly, underemployed) in contemporary artistic expression. In addition, fired enamels are the sole technique of applying lasting painted design to glass; acrylic paint, oils-each are impermanent on glass, and are easily removed. By firing enamels at over a thousand degrees, a guaranteed durability allows stable image making on glass without concern for permanence. Those comfortable with producing imagery, will find this offereing and ideal introduction to the material.

No prior experience with glass is necessary, though an appreciation of contemporary art and “outside of the box” thinking is essential.

This class will be an examination of blown glass sculpting and including colorful cane techniques into your studio practice. I am a big proponent of making parts and using hot glass time wisely. I will be covering many of the techniques that I use in my work; including using solid color cane and making "suppio" (little tubes) for parts. As a class we will work together to design and execute effects, patterns, and forms that use cane and blown glass sculpting together. I want to students to come away from this class with the tools they need to include color and pattern into their work by thinking creatively about cane.

Two part epoxy resins have come a long way as a creative material. This one day workshop is packed with essentials in how to incorporate resin into your art.  You’ll work with molds, bezels and a variety of colorants and inclusions to explore a range of possibilities. Techniques covered will include how to dome or dip resin pieces and how to include things like dried organics you bring to class. The instructor will demonstrate finishing options so you will know how to finalize your cured work. You will be able to take home your in progress pieces after class or pick them up the next day. All needed materials are provided in class, but it can be meaningful to bring your own special tidbits: dried organics, special papers, small photos, and any small ephemera to use in the resin.

At its most basic, a setting is a tiny feat of engineering that renders a gem wearable--as in a gemstone ring or pendant. But settings aren't just for showing off stones! They can be used to protect and attach a wide variety of items, from found objects to paper ephemera. Starting from the fundamentals of bezel setting, this class will also cover approaches such as square bezels, undulating bezels, hybrid prong settings, and setting with rivets, cages, and frames. With these skills, you'll be able to turn almost anything into a gem. You?ll also be able to scale your settings up for use in sculptures or even installation art. You?ll complete several samples or jewelry items and have time to undertake more experimental individual projects with your instructor's support. Prerequisite: JM1 or the ability to solder independently.

Many intricate and sculptural pieces of metal jewelry began life as featureless blocks of wax. By working in wax rather than metal, the carver creates form efficiently and opens up design possibilities. Students in this class will gain a thorough understanding of the processes, tools, and materials used to carve wax models for use in lost wax casting. Starting from a simple design, students will transfer it accurately onto a block of wax, then remove large amounts of excess material. Using a wide variety of simple tools, they will add details and refine surfaces, ending up with a completed wax model ready for casting. Casting is NOT part of this class, but students can have their wax models professionally cast or enroll in Introduction to Jewelry Lost Wax Casting to cast their own work.

Workshop: Color Magic With Viscosity Printing Viscosity printing is a process of color separation that combines methods of intaglio and relief inking, and allows multiple colors to be printed simultaneously from a single plate. In this workshop you will learn how to prepare and roll out inks of different fluidity properties, make a collograph plate, and pull prints using the viscosity method. With this method you will create ways of overlapping and mixing colors in a multitude of variations, opening up an infinity of color possibilities. The techniques you will learn in this class can be applied to copper plates as well. Experienced printmakers are welcome, but no experience is necessary to take this class and walk away with prints of your own. Prerequisite: Printmaking experience

Did you ever wonder how Bonnard, Manet, or Cezanne handled their oil paint? You can learn a lot by imitating the paint application of the masters. Some used layers of dry paint, some had directional strokes, and some had lush wet strokes. Unlike the older masters who used layers of glazes over monotone underpaintings, the Moderns each had an individual method that you can experience yourself. When you understand how the paintings were made you gain insight into the vision of the unique person who created them. Plus with some historical context you will realize how innovative and daring they were. In this workshop we will work with oil paint on three canvases to reproduce a section of a painting from each of the artists listed above. When you are done you will be able to go to museums and get a feeling for what went into the painting you are observing. You will also develop approaches to try in your own paintings. Bring your own brushes if you have them. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED. Prerequisite: none

Usually color is taught as 'Color Theory' which involves tediously painting in hundreds of little squares or placing pre-colored papers next to each other. After doing these exercises you still don't know what to do in your real life painting. This workshop is focused on actually using color on your painting and understanding how it works in a way you can use right away. First we will understand how to create and see color using a limited pallette which will teach you how to mix and see subtle color much more effectively. Then, studying particular masters, we will unlock the color harmony in their work so that you can reproduce it in a work of your own. In the end you will have at least two paintings to take home that you can use to find your own individual palette. We will be using oil paint and canvas which is provided for you, please bring your own brushes and palette knives if you have them. This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. Prerequisite: none

Many people think that if they can't draw in proportion they are 'not talented' and have no business doing art. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are not suited to careful measuring and painstaking draftsmanship you are not alone. This has nothing to do with whether or not you are 'talented' or whether or not you should try making art. This workshop will teach even the most drafting averse person how to get proportion without sacrificing the real value of the artwork, which is to learn to be comfortable with your own set of 'talents'. Some people never can make precise measurements but they can still draw in proportion through an intuitive quick approach.

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Akari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of sculptural paper lamps. From this we can gain inspiration and ideas for a pendant lamp design that can be completed in the five day class. In this class you will learn to build a sculptural lamp using several different wood bending techniques such as heat bending thin strips of wood, and using basket reed, and a tapered lamination technique that is unique and fun. Students will use these techniques to create three dimensional bends such as spirals, and helical forms without the constraints of clamps or conventional bending forms. You will learn the basics of the tapered lamination process, beginning with rough lumber that you will joint, plane, and rip into thin strips to be tapered. Send an email to Kim Mcintyre kmcintyre@pratt.org to get the finer details of the class, including the required student tool list.

Green woodworking is when you use a freshly cut log. The extra moisture in the wood makes carving way easier to do then when working with dried wood. Experience getting to work green wood with an adze and a hook knife to make a bowl. Bowls in this carving style tend to take on a deeper platter shape and often tool marks are intentionally left for visual interest due to the texture they leave behind. All experience levels are welcome. If you have taken Ed's Carving Tool Making class, this will be a fun opportunity to use your new tools. ***This class will meet in the turning studio.
