In this class learn the basics of sculpting glass flowers out of Borosilicate glass. Working with both a bench and hand torch you will learn how to use and apply color, as well as how to shape petals, leaves, tendrils and more. A focus on solid hot seals will be covered and how ‘bridging’ can be your friend. Both group and one-on-one demonstrations will be given. Please bring a sketch book and any ideas you have. Small to medium flora will be made. Class tuition includes 2 hours of open studio time per student to be used during the same class session. This will help students become familiar with the studio and learn the simple process of studio rental outside of class hours. COVID-19 CLASS POLICY The health and safety of our students and instructors is still our most important priority. High touch surfaces and equipment are cleaned after every class and multiple times a day. Due to the nature of the glass making process, every studio in the building has state-of-the-art ventilation. Masks are required for all visitors in all indoor public spaces. Beginning September 22, all individuals over the age of 12 who are taking a class or workshop must be vaccinated except for people with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. Guests who fall into one of these exemption categories must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the class/workshop start time.
