Kiln Working and Engraving
All Levels
Two-Week Session

This class will focus on hollow core kiln casting and traditional engraving techniques, layering the interior space of an object with images on the glass surface. Students will learn to create glass objects by kiln casting, and then add images on the surface by engraving. The class will provide a special opportunity to alter unique objects by utilizing the inherent qualities of glass–both visually and conceptually. Demonstrations and instruction will encompass moldmaking, modeling, coldworking, and engraving techniques. Other topics to be reviewed include casting with different types of glass and engraving with various wheel types.

It will be a great introduction for beginners, and helpful for advanced students as well!
