French vanilla is a special kind of glass. It has fusing properties that are unique among coloured glass and allows you to create designs that in some ways don't "look" like glass.
In this advanced beginner class you will not only build a more complex design but also take your first steps in cold working (grinding, carving or polishing) your project. (Cold working allows for a wider range of options in glass design). It can take a bit of work, but its worth the time!
This 2-evening workshop teaches you how to:
Weigh and cut glass to build your design
Learn the next steps in glass volume control
Lap grind and shape your bowl/platter blank
Learn how sandblasting can affect your piece during firing
This class accommodates up to 5 students only.
Your bowl will be ready to take home one week after your second class.
