Visiting Artist Workshop: Hot Glass Academy – Glass Blowing with Devan Cole

March 12, 2020

March 15, 2020

9:00 am

$50 for members, $60 for not-yet members

Indulge your inner artist with a two-hour glass blowing session!

Hot Glass Academy is a mobile glassblowing studio that will set up a furnace on WMA’s campus on March 12th-15th for multiple sessions. Each workshop session begins with a comprehensive safety introduction to working with hot glass. Students then begin their one-on-one session with the instructor by picking out one or two glass colors for their object, followed by a brief, fun warm-up with glass and tools for each student to become familiar with the material properties of molten glass.

Next, students will gather glass on a steel blowpipe or rod, apply their chosen color(s), and shape the glass into the selected form. Each piece will be placed in the annealing oven for a slow cooling process*. Every object is handmade and no two are exactly the same. Students will have the option to create a cup, ornament, paperweight, or flower.

Call 334-794-3871 for more information.

*Objects will be available for pickup the next day, following the slow cooling process.
