Decorative glass techniques are essential when learning to handle glass as a medium. Often, glass is produced for its beauty, especially around the holidays. This beginner to intermediate class will focus on these techniques to produce objects of beauty that are simple, quick, and reproducible. No glass blowing experience is necessary but is helpful.
Chad will focus on blown hanging ornaments just in time for the holidays. The basic techniques to make ornaments are quite simple. Students will have fun making stunning ornaments using many decorative processes learned earlier in the day. Each class member can expect to make several ornament styles throughout the session.
