Craft in Context
Using the vessel as our subject, this advanced glassblowing workshop will focus on both the act of crafting and the crafted object. Intensive studio practice sessions and demonstrations will offer participants the opportunity to sharpen glassblowing skills and refine techniques. Workshop conversations and individual meetings will address design and process development in personal and professional craft contexts. A minimum of 2-3 consecutive years of consistent glassblowing experience required.
