Together we will discover the amazing world of cold working and engraving glass! During the class, we will work to understand the importance of coldworking for all glass makers, as we take an in depth look at the limitless potential of this studio. Students will practice and become comfortable with the equipment, and learn how to transform a simple glass object into a stunning piece. It is incredible how engraving can add a special value to the glass! The course will cover working with the lathes, engraving lathes, and the variety of wheels available for each, and will focus on pattern making and traditional techniques. The class will also include discussions about cold working history and imagery, demonstrations of engraving and lathe working techniques, and personal work time.
