Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, youll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with todays Groupon to Stone and Glass. Classes are held on Saturday by appointment only. Choose between the following options:
Accomplished glass artisan, sculptor, and visual expressionist James Stone draws from a quarter-century of artistry to transform imaginative amateurs into passionate glass aesthetes. In the 4-hour Introductory Glassblowing class, beginners observe the masters as they transmogrify ordinary glass into glossy ornaments, tumblers, and paperweights. In the one-on-one hands-on demonstration, students will learn how to safely and effectively use a chalice of quartz and torch to breathe glossy life into their amorphous crystals. All apprentices will leave with the fundamentals of the fascinating craft, as well as their very own shiny glass vessels, whether they choose to use them to catch spilled milk or as amulets to ward off house-blowing wolves.
During roll-up-technique lessons, students produce an ornate stained-glass roll-up vase using layered glass and fusing techniques. Students create a repeating pattern using traditional cold and warm glass-making techniques and the blessings of artistically frustrated lunch snacks. Patterns fuse into a single plate with the help of an instructor and cheering kiln salamanders. During the second session, supervised participants can enlist the glass-blowing team or volunteer to blow and roll their own molten creations into a unique vase to take home.
