All Levels
One-Week Session

In this special week-long course, students will create a variety of fun, twisted, and tangled free-form shapes with borosilicate tubing. While no specific form will be the target, students are encouraged to arrive with design concepts in mind, utilizing the primary skills being explored including: bending and twisting borosilicate tubing while maintaining an even wall weight; Butt seals and Dieter (Jesus) seals; and basic lathe techniques. Students will create artistic manipulated hollow forms with the potential to withstand high-vacuum applications. Class takes place from 9 am - 5 pm with no evening practice hours. This class uses borosilicate (hard) glass. Some flamework experience is recommended; however, all levels are welcome to join the fun!

6 spots available.
