Glassblowing

Intermediate
Duration: 
Two-Week Session

Build a firm foundation in the basic movements of Venetian-style glassblowing, focusing on well-formed and thinly-blown vessel bodies, excellent necks, delicate mereses, and blown feet and stems. When students have mastered these techniques, they will proceed to making canes and studying caneworking processes. Objects from the Museum’s collection will be closely studied—initially to frustrate, and then to inspire. One year of glassblowing experience is required.
