This short 5-day intermediate level class will focus on making and decorating classical and geometric functional forms in the Hot Shop. We will be making patterns with cane and murrini and we will be using the pastorale to pick up these patterns.

Topics covered will include color compatibility and viscosity, aesthetics in design and color, tools and shop maintenance, energy conservation and efficiency, and much more. There is a lot to talk about here in a short time so be ready to ask questions and get involved. Maybe you’ll learn something from the old folks.
