Hot Glass Sculpting
This intensive class will build on time-proven as well as innovative hot glass sculpting techniques. We will emphasize teamwork and focus on the use of the hot garage to construct with glass parts. We will cover torch work, customized tools, and experimental ways of drawing and creating texture with glass frits and powders. We will spend time on essential thought processes as students develop their own dialogue with glass using a newly acquired vocabulary. Three years of hot glass experience plus hard work, perseverance, and fun required. Code 05ga

Joseph Cavalieri - Painting on Stained Glass
Translate your style and vision onto glass by learning modern techniques of painting on layered stained glass. We will start with basic cutting and soldering and then move on to painting, airbrushing, and silkscreening on glass. After the glass is kiln-fired, it is layered to create a three-dimensional image. We will discuss inspiration, color theory, digital design, framing, lighting, and shortcuts. All levels. Code 05gb
