Saturday at the Glass Studio
Apr 20, 2013
We offer a free glass art demo every day at noon.
On the class calendar:
• Introductory Glassblowing: Champagne Paperweight
This is our most popular introductory class. In these two-hour sessions you'll use a blowpipe to convert hot glass into a colorful champagne paperweight. In the process, you’ll get familiar with the Studio equipment and working with molten glass. Today's session begins at 2 p.m. and you can sign up or get more details here. You can repeat these classes for more practice or advance to more in-depth instruction.
• Two-Weekend Workshop: A Survey of Four Glass Processes
In two Saturdays you can learn four different glass techniques—glassblowing, flameworking, fusing and coldworking. From creative paperweights to carefully constructed tiles, from beautiful colored or clear beads to elegantly engraved creations, here's a fun way to learn the possibilities of glass. Held on consecutive Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., April 20 / 27. You can sign up online. ($175 Members, $225 all others).
• Two-Day workshop: Sculpting on the Torch
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21
Fire up your inner sculptor as you learn the basics of working glass in the torch. These two days will give you an opportunity to investigating a variety of shapes and techniques to create familiar forms or visionary glass sculptures. To sign up, click here. ($150 Members, $200 all others).
