In this advanced class you are encouraged to focus on the techniques that interest you as a developing glass artist. Choose to either watch weekly technique-driven demonstrations or work on independent projects with the guidance and support of instructor. Refine basic skills and methodology as you create unique vessels and learn about a broad range of more complicated techniques including the use of solid colors, mold-blowing, and the creation of compound shapes. Content will vary by session and basic materials are provided.

Students are allotted a $15 materials credit to use during this class session in order to become familiar with the procedure of purchasing materials and securing studio rental beyond class hours. Hot 2, 72 hours of hot shop experience, or instructor permission is required.
