Sunday at the Glass Studio
Apr 14, 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. This is the second day of a two-day workshop. You can sign up online. ($200 Members, $250 all others).
• Two-Hour Class: An Introduction to Glass Fusing
Create your own custom glass tiles or coasters! From design to cutting, from layout to firing in the kiln, our Studio staff will give you an overview of the fusing process. From 2-4 p.m. on selected Sundays, so you can come back again if you wish. You can sign up online here. ($40 Members, $60 all others).
• Two-Day Workshop: Casters of the Lost Wax
Today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. is the second day of a two-day workshop on 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. You can sign up here. ($130 Members, $170 all others).
