Glassblowing Masterclass with Mark Eliott
SPACE: OUT THE BACK
WHEN: 10am-5pm 9 Dec 2017 – 10 Dec 2017
Experience the magic of blowing and sculpting glass in the flame in this hands-on workshop for beginners and intermediate level students.
This 1 - 2 day introductory course focused on Summer colours and forms will cover many of the basic techniques used for working clear and coloured borosilicate glass in the flame using an oxygen-propane torch; including sculpting, joining, stretching, blowing, and colour mixing. The focus will be on having fun and combining planning with improvisation to produce a variety of objects you can take home including: small abstract sculptural forms, vessels, pendants or other wearable objects, glass animal or figurative forms, flowers, trees or other branching forms.
Students are encouraged to complete both days, but may choose to complete Saturday only. Those with prior experience may join on the second day by contacting Mark on the phone number below.
