Prerequisites: None (previous glass art experience is a plus)
This class is for those with minimal to no cold working experience. It is an introductory course that will show you how to use and safely operate the wet saw, the belt grinder, the flat lap grinder, and the lathe. Each student will understand how and when to use each piece of equipment in a safe and efficient manner. Cutting, grinding, and ultimately polishing glass work will be accomplished! Beyond basic understanding of cold working processes, this class will provide a strong foundation for further exploration into more advanced cold working techniques.
Strong safety fundamentals will be taught in this class. Believe it or not, the cold shop is more dangerous than the hot shop!)
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.
