Marbles (borosilicate) - 3hr class
Immerse yourself in the beauty of these spherical glass forms! Students will learn about surface treatments and also how to create colourful glass inclusions which are magnified through the lens created by a layer of clear encasement. The teacher will present a basic overview of borosilicate glasswork, including some colours, the use of puntils (glass handles), cold seals versus hot seals, as well as how to work with a marble mold and gravity to form a sphere. Tools and materials are provided for the class. Intro to Boro Sculpture, Beginner Boro or some previous hot glass experience would be beneficial. Due to the nature of glass, students will have to return to pick up their finished pieces after they have been annealed.
Teacher is Drew Rankin of Drewski Glass
