This class will explore a technique commonly called “networking” with borosilicate glass. It’s a lovely, manageable introduction to sculptural flameworking for those who are new to glass, and it can be scaled to any level of expertise.
Networking is creating a lattice using thin glass rods and building it into a structure. Networking can be used to create an infinite variety of two and three-dimensional pieces: animals, birds, vessels, ornaments, dream catchers, flowers, leaves and fruits— anything you can dream up.
Beginners will start with making small 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional objects of the student’s choosing. Those with some networking experience may make more complex forms.
If you’ve never interacted with art glass before and just want a casual introduction to the medium, you’ll want to book a Glass Experience. These are half-day sessions that are a lot of fun, whether solo or with a group.
If you have a Groupon for BAGI, then the Glass Experience is for you—book here.
