Intermediate Glass Inflation


October 5 - December 7, 2020 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Ten-Week Session

Glassblowing and problem-solving go hand-in-hand, and in this era of COVID-19, glassblowers must adapt. To that end, the technicians at The Studio have developed a system to inflate glass with compressed air. It takes some getting used to, but it has advantages that will be explored together, socially distanced. Instruction will cover simple compressed air inflation techniques before moving on to optic mold blowing, then fun experiments. This class is designed for intermediate glassmakers who want to build skill with this new tool. Students should be able to marver, keep glass on-center, as well as have a basic understanding of the tools and process. This class meets on Monday evenings for ten weeks beginning October 5, 2020.

For the wellbeing of all students and staff, The Studio workshops have been modified, class capacity has been reduced, and sanitizing and social distancing protocols have been introduced. Detailed information about these measures can be found on The Studio Health and Safety page.

Students registered for this class must comply with the New York State COVID-19 Travel Advisory. A health questionnaire and temperature scan will be required before attending class.
