In this multi-disciplinary masterclass, Laura Quinn will guide you through the process of creating intricate lampworked glass forms using cane pulled from furnace glass. The formations will be preheated and applied to blown vessels in the glass hotshop on the final day of the course. The emphasis will be on experimentation.
This class is suitable for intermediate level students, who can embrace failure as being part of the learning curve in testing the limits of interdisciplinary making. If you are unsure about suitability please email us.
