Instructor: Raven Skyriver

This class is designed to challenge your understanding of the medium of glass. We will start with an overview of the basic techniques used when sculpting glass, and build on that foundation. You will be encouraged to innovate, and problem solve, at the drawing board, and at the work bench.

Chris Ahalt will be teaching simultaneously in the flame shop, and we hope to explore some collaborative concepts, in the hot shop. The cross pollination of the two studios will be an added facet, and present challenges that will illustrate the importance of communication and teamwork in the hot shop. Hope to see you there!
