Cane & Cups


February 4 - 9, 2019
One-Week Session

Focusing on working in the traditional Venetian style, learn cane techniques such as mezza–filigrana, reticello, and zanfirico, incorporating various patterns to create multi–part vessels and goblets; utilizing the garage for complex construction techniques.

The Museum’s collection and the Rakow Research Library will be used for inspiration, reference, and as a point of departure for exploring the world of canes and cups.

Through demonstrations, exercises, coaching, and study of historic archetypes, students will learn about the finer points of cane work and complex vessel forming and develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the craft.

Two years of glassblowing experience are required.
