June 24 - 29, 2019
Cold Working
All Levels
One-Week Session

Adding cold work to glass jewelry can greatly expand the form and surface options for the finished work. Students will develop an understanding of sculpting and finishing glass in a range of forms. They will explore various surface finishes, engraving, and inventive approaches to both carving and patterning with a sandblaster. Forms can be finished as jewelry or serve as sculptural studies for larger work. 

No glassworking experience is required.
