Engineering For Your Glass Sculpture

August 11, 2019 – August 17, 2019

Sara Sally LaGrand

In this workshop students learn basic hand-making techniques for building larger-scale glass sculptures and improving their overall glass skill from color overlay to stringer control. The key to successful flameworked sculpture without the fragility is the underlying structure. During class you will learn how to turn your fabulous idea into a well-engineered work of art either for wall, lapel or table. Once you master the engineering part of the problem, the sky is your own personal limit. Some flamework or lamp work experience is required.
