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.

Veterans Glassblowing Day was initially inspired by President Obama's plea for citizens to help our veterans find work after returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Following President Obama's passing of the Veterans Skills to Jobs Act in July 2012, longtime glassblower Lisa Aronzon was inspired by this call to action and invited the glassblowing community to come together in support of our veterans. As our nation faces financial uncertainty, social revolution, acts of violence, and military conflicts, Veterans Glassblowing Day offers a terrific opportunity for Americans to pay it forward to our troops. Pratt Fine Arts Center is proud to offer this FREE opportunity to our Veterans.
