All workshops will be filled on a first come basis until the participant maximum is met. Once the class limit is reached, a waiting list will be kept.
This two week workshop will focus on form and forming techniques using blown glass elements. The primary blown forms such as the sphere, cylinder, and cone will be explored as a primary skill set. Participants then will begin to develop a language of functional forms using this geometric foundation and the inherent material properties of clear and colored glass. It can be taken in workshop format or you can earn two undergraduate credits at an additional cost. See http://www.alfred.edu/summer/term/.
Open to all levels.
