Instructor: Manuel Castro

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. Prerequisite: Experienced Intermediate Glassblowing

Many barely detectable manipulations of the bubble collectively bring the sculpture to life. Daily demonstrations will provide insight to the nuances of sculpting inside the bubble. Beginning with a rough form, the instructor will show students his methodical approach to transforming a bubble into an expressive piece of work with implied movement and gesture. After gaining a better understanding of the material and heating methods, hands on practice will give students the opportunity to translate their sketches into 3 dimensional works This course will give students a more complete understanding of bit work, sculpting using inside sculpting tools, spot heating using a variety of torches as well as hot assembly of sculptural elements from the garage. Prerequisite: At least 2 years of glassblowing.

Instructor: Donna Prunkard

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

Instructor: Morgan Peterson

Alter the shape and/or surface texture of glass using tools and processes that don't rely upon heat. This includes grinding, carving, engraving, polishing and sandblasting-- all of which provide opportunities for artists to resolve aesthetic and functional issues, ranging from shape and surface quality to strength and stability of edges. In this class, you will try your hand at many coldworking methods, using state-of-the-art tools. You will also discuss ways to adapt basic methods to home studio practice. Prerequisite: None.

Instructor: Thor Bueno

In this intermediate glassblowing class non-traditional surface decoration techniques will be explored. Experimentation is encouraged and students will approach the blown glass bubble as a canvas to re-invent upon. Students will learn about encase-able high fire enamels, low fire surface enamels, advanced powder techniques, surface textures, mirroring, cold working and anything else we can "what if". Hot, fast, fluid and spontaneous blowing techniques will be demonstrated and encouraged. This is a high-energy intensive class, come prepared to play super hard and absorb more information than humanly possible.
