Starting with basic borosilicate flameworking techniques, this class will focus on building structures in solid glass (with some forays into hollow objects). Using a kiln shelf and working directly from scale drawings, students can expect to learn the fundamentals of borosilicate flameworking as well as techniques more specific to this method of building. Bring grand ideas, a pencil, a drawing compass, and expect to learn through demos, illustrated handouts, slides shows, and hands on experience.
