Introductory Glass Blowing Workshop with Mark Eliott
This two day introductory course 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, encasement and colour mixing. The focus will be on having fun and combining planning with improvisation to produce a variety of objects which you can take home, including: small abstract sculptural forms, vessels, pendants or other wearable objects, glass animal or figurative forms and trees or other branching forms.
