Break the Mold


September 24 - November 26, 2018 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Glassblowing and Moldmaking
Ten-Week Session

Have you ever had an idea that seemed impossible to turn into reality in the hot shop? Sharp lines, sculptural vessels and complex details are all possible in the glassblowing studio with the help of—you guessed it—MOLDS!

Designed for intermediate glassblowers, students will explore and experiment with different kinds of blow molds. Beginning in the work room, participants will learn the basics of mold building with plaster including simple one–part molds. The class will experiment with different materials to create pattern and shape including clay, wax, and natural materials. Students will then bring these molds into the hot shop to be blown into. The class will cover basic one–part, two–part, and hot plaster blow molds, each time returning to the hot shop to test students’ latest creations. This class meets on Monday evenings for 10 weeks beginning September 24. One year of glassblowing experience required, but no prior moldmaking experience is necessary.

This class is full.
