ID : 1860    Section Number : ESER-9403-AG
« back to classes page

This course will introduce you to a series of techniques necessary to make hollow forms at the torch. A variety of techniques and approaches focusing on blown components will be demonstrated using clear glass. Throughout the week you’ll learn the fundamental skills of proper heating and shaping. You’ll learn how to make hollow components and attach them together to make more complicated forms. We’ll cover everything from goblets and cups to teapots and pipes. You are encouraged to come with ideas and inspiration for forms you’d like to explore. This is an intermediate course and previous flameworking experience is highly recommended.
