Class Info pdf:The Process of Making
This seven-day workshop is for experienced kiln workers who wish to explore and develop an individual approach to design and making. It will challenge participants to step out of the predictable and re-look at the potential of kilnformed glass and their way of working. Although this class will cover a range of practical techniques, the primary emphasis will be on exploring the process of developing ideas and making, not on finished products. Utilizing creative exercises, drawing, model making, and the techniques of kilnforming and cold working, students will experiment, combine processes, and prepare tests and prototypes that may serve as starting points for further development. Hands-on workshop time will be complimented by individual attention, group discussions, a field trip and presentations on historical and contemporary glass, and each student will be asked to share their knowledge, ideas and experience by participating in an individual 15- minute presentation.
