Glass 644 001
1 credit hour, 1 week
Lab Fee $150

Students will survey a wide variety of techniques using standard glass tools and equipment while also receiving more specialized instruction on particular techniques and processes to pursue specific projects. Through demonstrations, discussions, and experimentation students will build a deeper understanding of the medium and the best methods to realize their ideas. This course will teach glassblowing basics and assist experienced students in furthering their own abilities. Beginning glassblowers and advanced students alike will oscillate between tradition and experimentation in order to find the perfect method through which to realize their desired form or concept.
