Drawing with Glass
In this weekend workshop, we’ll create a 3-D glass drawing. You’ll have the choice to trace your personal drawings or work from a template. We’ll explore different shaping and sculpting techniques using various hand tools to achieve unique and diverse designs. Student will sketch ideas and take turns using both bench and hand torches to make their drawings come to life in glass! We will focus on technical skills with solid borosilicate glass by breaking down the logistics of bridging when lampworking. We will also cover techniques including hot/cold seals, kinetics/moving parts, networking, sculpting and “drawing.” You will walk away with a 3-D object based upon your drawing.
