Beginning Skill Level Only: Young Adults & Adults
Instructor: Gayla Lee
Create artworks from layering glass then firing in a kiln to full, tack or slump fuse temperatures. Beginning/Intermediate classes are great for students who have no previous glass experience or want a refresher on basic skills. Discover the art of kiln-forming, including types of glass and basic principles of compatibility. Learn the hand tools and equipment for scoring, cutting, coldworking, etching and shaping glass. Choose from opal, transparent, iridized and streaky sheet glass, frit (crushed glass) and glass stringers. Students will learn design concepts and how to choose which technique will best accomplish their goal. Focus will be on process and exploring possibilities that can be achieved with glass.
