Prerequisite: none, beginners welcome!

Instructor: Kathleen Elliot

In this class students will learn to make life-size botanical sculptures, realistic or imaginary. We will work with clear borosilicate glass tube and rods, making both blown hollow and sculpted solid elements that will be assembled into sculptures. We are working with clear glass to allow time to build blowing and sculpting skills before the additional skills of color application. In the next series of classes later this year, we will follow up with a series on colored botanical sculptures. It will be helpful for students to have at least one flameworking experience before taking this class, but that isn’t essential if students have patience.
