Teens Ages 13-18 will take over the Brooklyn Glass Studio in this intensive summer class!
This one week summer program introduces the students to the science and art of glass working with the guidance of our highly knowledgable teachers.
This will give students a hands-on experience of learning the many facets of glass in one of the top studios of New York City.
Sessions will include glassblowing in the Hot Shop. Students will learn the basic techniques and material capabilities such as gathering, blowing, tool handling, and glass manipulation. On the last day of camp, students will learn how we charge our furnace, and how to cold work their completed pieces from the previous four days.
During the 1 hour lunch all students will come together for discussion with the instructors and fellow students.
Students will leave with a handful of artwork and a basic understanding of the unique collaborative art that is glass working.
Projects will include: Hand blown drinking glasses, paperweights, flowers, and bowls.
