Beginner Glassblowing

Course No. CEGL100
Cost $260 Register Now
Credits 0.0
Sessions 5
Dates September 21-October 19 (Friday) – 6:30-9:30pm
Faculty Andrew Dolan | David Hart | Gary D. Sampson | Lane Cooper | Michael Weil | Rita Goodman

This introductory-level glassblowing class will teach you the basics of manipulating hot glass. Starting with the bubble, you will learn ways to develop blown forms out of glass. We will use basic functional shapes like cups, vases, and ornaments as building blocks to gain an understanding of how glassblowing works. Each class we will add a different type of blown form to try; however, you will be encouraged to bring ideas of shapes and forms that you would like to blow.
