Weekend Creature Feature

This class will focus on introducing students to sculptural flameworking in borosilcate glass with an emphasis on creating creatures both real and fantastic. We will touch upon elements such as texture, proportion, and structure to inform our skills and where and how we apply different hot working techniques to get the best possible results. We won't be focusing on photo realism but working on the basics and having a good time with them.
