Glass Dimensional Construction with Eunsuh Choi
When: Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays, May 30 - Jun 3
Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Dates: May 30, 31; Jun 1, 2, 3
Tuition $900.00
Instructor: Eunsuh Choi

This class is focused on a specific technique called Networking, connecting rods of glass together in a tight, web-like configuration which eventually creates a hollow form with a defined silhouette.

You will learn how to build a solid foundation for construction technique by bending and welding rods together. You will use life-sized drawings or blue prints to make pieces in two- and/or three-dimensions. We will cover structural analysis, and design analysis to make sculptural pieces by working with small diameter solid rods in sculptural contexts.

Most of the time will be spent working on projects and developing designs. Design and engineering concepts will be used to build the frameworks for the pieces. This tedious networking technique can use any type of constructions from body ornaments to life size sculptures. Focusing on concept and technical skills, we will push ideas from the sketchbook onto the torch. 

5 of 10 seats available.
