Rob Morrison & Preston Hanna

# of Registrants:

November 14-16th, 11am-7pm
Price: $750   Instructor:   Skill Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Rob Morrison and Preston Hanna will team up for this 3-day demo class. Known for colorful Sesame Street characters, beavers and recyclers, they plan on each making one solo piece separately and two in collaboration.

 "We plan to address side seals, ring seals, color application, assembly, texture, tools and how they relate to basic sculpture. Through construction of our pieces, you will learn to break down a character to simple shapes to recreate in glass. After a little practice of the techniques taught, one should be able to work through more complex work with more confidence and fewer mistakes."

Learn the basics of pipemaking in this intensive 3-day class!

Starting Friday evening from 4-8pm with a basic course in torch use, safety, and beginning to melt glass, the next two days will be an accelerated course in beginning glassblowing geared towards creating functional pipes. Saturday and Sunday are full-length, 7-hour classes from 10am-5pm. The instruction will include demos followed by hands-on student practice with teacher assistance. There will be time for students to practice on their own during Saturday and Sunday's classes. Materials, tools and torches will be provided.

Our Pipemaking 101 class is structured to teach students from the beginning steps of torch safety all the way to creating a finished piece. We do not require previous flameworking experience, although students who do have some experience may gain more from the class.
