The Better Way to Get Better: Intro to Glassblowing

Intensive
Intensive | 5 Sessions: June 19 — June 23
6:00 - 10:00 pm

Molten glass is a medium that’s incredibly difficult to master and it’s all too easy to get stuck making the same mistakes over and over. This class is all about how to identify and get past problems in the most effective and efficient way possible.

Beginning with the gather, we’ll work our way through the week by adding onto the lessons of the previous day and crafting exercises that move us through our sticking points. Applying methods of deliberate practice, the focus will be on fundamentals and on basic shapes that serve as building blocks for even the most advanced techniques. In order to make the most of our time, we’ll work mainly in clear so that everyone gets plenty of quick and deliberate practice. Demonstrations will set the direction for the day and allow for lots of individual attention to identify and tackle specific challenges. Skill level is immaterial… we all have our struggles.
