Built to Last: Ergonomic Intro to Glassblowing

Romina Gonzales

This one week intensive will focus on understanding what structures in our body are affected by the motions involved in the glassblowing process. Through presentations we will gain knowledge on human anatomy, length and tension relationship between opposing muscles, posture and movement patterns. Glassblowing processes in the hot shop will be geared towards awareness regarding specific movements that strain our bodies and how to consciously adjust our position. Physical exercises before and at the end of each day will aim to restore strength, improve mobility and release our muscles and fascia.

This class will be co-taught by Physical Trainer Chris Nobels.
