This one week information filled workshop at the world class Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass will focus on making glass wearable.
Adding cold work to glass jewelry can greatly expand the form and surface options for the finished work. Students will develop an understanding of sculpting and finishing glass in a range of forms. They will explore various surface finishes, engraving, and inventive approaches to both carving and patterning with a sandblaster. Forms can be finished as jewelry or serve as sculptural studies for larger work. This class is limited to just 7 students.

Dates: June 24 - 29, 2019.
Technique: Cold Working.
All Levels. No glassworking experience is required.
Duration: One-Week Session.
Price: 875 $ + 20 $ Class application.
