Gaffer, Kugler, Reichenbach. Hard colors and soft colors.  Transparent and opaque... Color can bring a whole different dimension to glass, but if new to the process of glassblowing, it can be somewhat overwhelming.  This class will focus on color application and look to demystify the process.  We will explore the properties of color and understand how they work together with blown forms.  We will seek to simplify the process, from applying color bar to pulling cane.  In addition to gaining new perspective on color, students will continue to reinforce and improve on their previous glass blowing skills. 

TMA offers full and partial scholarships for glass studio master classes. Download the scholarship application form here. Completed scholarship applications for glass studio master classes must be received by April 1, 2022.

Beginning in May and continuing through August, these one-week master classes will offer instruction in a variety of glass techniques including glassblowing, flameworking, glass fusing, cutting and hot sculpting. Each teaching artist is internationally recognized and brings with them a set of highly specific and refined skill sets unique to each studio in the Glass Pavilion. The classes will run one week, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with lunch provided. Each week-long class will cost $950 for Museum members and $1,000 for non-members. Many of the classes are open to artists of all skill levels but some will require intermediate or advanced experience. Each class will be limited to four students and scholarships are available. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. As travel and gathering guidelines are subject to change in accordance with COVID 19 protocol, Master Class may be affected.
