6 week course, starting Wednesday evenings April 20th
6:30-9:30pm, 4 student max.
$300pp, depost of $100 required to hold space.

The fluidity, depth, and optical qualities of glass, along with its ability to transmit light make it an incredible medium for artists and crafts people.

Students may also purchase individual rods sold at the studio, .67¢ to $4.00pr depending on colour. Silver foil, sheet & mesh is available at the studio $1.50-$2per sheet.
Over the next 5 weeks,
Continuing where you left off the 1st evening, learn how to shape different forms, rake, encase, make 'twisties', simple murini, mix your own colours! Make hollow, florals, zebra & tiger striped beads, sculpt!
-Work with metal -in- glass! Using siver foil/leaf in your beads. Work with ivory glass, silver and clear, pull silvered ivory stringer. Add silver foil to other colours and see what happens! Start working 'off-mandrel.-Small scale glass blowing -Marbles, & More! Warning: Off-Mandrel flameworking is addictive. :)

-Work Large! Create beautiful focal pieces, intergalactic marbles, and pendants.
Demos include: Small vessels, working with metal mesh, and more
