Experiments in Glassblowing

Deborah Adler
GLASS 616 001
3 credit hours, 2 weeks
Lab Fee: $300

This class is intended for multi-level glass students who wish to broaden their scope of this versatile medium. Students will be asked to refine their technical abilities in order to more clearly convey their artistic pursuits. The class will begin by covering basic glass blowing techniques.  Through skill building exercises the class will learn to work as a team on large-scale projects.  Students will be encouraged to learn, but not take too seriously, the traditional aspects of this process. There will be an emphasis on incorporating other materials both through the glass blowing process and in the finished product.
