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.
