Make It Happen!
Workshop participants will discover the potential to make forms and ideas come to life in glass. We will develop a strong foundation of glassmaking skills through blowing, bit working, and an introduction to color and patterning. We will discover how a combination of traditional and experimental approaches to glass can bring any idea to fruition. This workshop is an introduction to working with hot glass through demonstrations, skill building exercises, and a focus on individual practice. For beginning glassblowers.
