Glassblowing allows you to think about  Form and Function, Art and Design. In this class we will practise some old techniques and play around with them to make them new again. The focus will be on using the qualities we love in glass – transparency, refraction, and distortion.  Whether it be intended to function as a bowl, a vase or a piece of sculpture, some of the old techniques of earlier glassblowers can be incorporated in the work’s design features.  David will share his experience in the class to do this. The class will also feature some visiting artists demonstrations and talks.
