Form + Color
In the first week of this advanced workshop, students will focus on refining their skills by working on clear, simple forms, such as tumblers, cylinders, bowls, and bottles. They will practice working efficiently, improve heat control, and survey basic blowing theories. During the second week, students will use these skills and apply them to color techniques, such as basic color overlays, an introduction to cane work, incalmo, and other decorative processes. Instruction will be personalized to build on individual skills, and one-on-one time will be given to help find simple solutions to common struggles. Goals are to increase efficiency, build confidence, and understand the value of teamwork. Two years of glassblowing experience are required.
