Saturday at the Glass Studio
Apr 13, 2013
We offer a free glass art demo every day at noon.
On the calendar today for classes or special events:
• Two-Day Workshop: Hot Glass Sculpting
Learn simple sculpting skills to transform hot glass into amazing animals, fun fish, or beautiful birds. Try out new techniques and tools, experiment with color application, learn the ins and outs of glass teamwork, and create something unique in the process. All beginners welcome, but experience gathering glass preferred. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, April 13-14. You can sign up online. ($200 Members, $250 all others).
• One-Day Workshop: Glass Fusing (Fused Plate)
From design to cutting, from layout to firing in the kiln, our Studio staff will give you an overview of the fusing process and guide you through the creation of your own work of art. The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and you can sign up online here. ($90 Members, $115 all others.)
• Two-Day Workshop: Casters of the Lost Wax
This Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., take on a hot new adventure—learning the intrigues of the lost-wax process. Make molds with wax and clay, then work them with plaster and silica to capture fingerprint-level details. Load glass chips into the mold, then fire and anneal your creation in the kiln to create an artistic cast-glass sculpture or a functional object sure to stand the test of time. You can sign up here. ($130 Members, $170 all others).
