Welcome to Glasstronomy Studios’ fall program. These Thursday night courses give you the opportunity to focus on a single project or technique over several weeks. These courses run from 7–10 pm each Thursday evening. On the evenings when a course is in session, the Studio will close at 5 pm and reopen at 6:45 pm.
As glass artists, we are drawn to the beauty of super-heated glass and the spectacular random patterns created as it flows through apertures. Using 96 COE glass, participants will experiment with several vessels and techniques while forming super-heated glass into pot melts, screen melts, and vitrigraph cane. Learn about colour mixing and volume manipulation while creating three finished pieces with this one-of-a-kind material.
The Morton Circle and Border System and glass drilling will also be covered.
Materials and firings included. Stand is optional.
Thursdays, February 1, 8, 15, and 22, 2018, from 7–10 pm
Fee: $425 + HST
Learn how to create movement and form in your kiln fired pieces to achieve a sculptural effect. During this two-week course, participants will learn how to manipulate glass volume to direct flow using kiln safe powders. Once cast, participants will apply a textural layer to be re-fired into an 8-inch by 10-inch wave sculpture.
All materials and firings included.
Thursdays, March 1 and 8, 2018, from 7–10 pm
