Course Code: ARTS0466
Discover the excitement of hot glasswork and create fascinating paperweights using traditional tools and techniques dating back 2000 years. These methods are still used today by the world's leading vessel makers and glass sculptors. Glass is first melted in a furnace to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit upon which time you will then learn how to gather the molten material on the end of a steel blowpipe to form it into a one-of-a-kind paperweight. Safe practices will be continually emphasized throughout the workshop. This is an excellent introduction to the intrigue of hot glass work. Colour will be available for purchase in the Bookstore.
