This workshop seeks to recognize and develop the individual needs of each student as we experiment with materials, investigate methods, and seek to achieve goals set through design and glassmaking exercises. A thorough overview of hot and cold glass techniques will be offered with a particular eye open to invention with regards to developing originality.

 A focus on the pursuit of resource materials so as to gain awareness of the bigger picture, discussions aimed at observing styles, influences, and source materials will energize your direction.

What is important to one student will simultaneously inform the group thereby providing a wealth of information to build upon your philosophy and artistic path.
