A course of 11 sessions, each lasting 3 hours. Students will learn how to score and cut glass, about compatible glass, incorporating frits and stringers and illustrating their work with glassline paint or enamels,  to ultimately making pieces that can then be slumped into a bowl.

I teach through a mixture of demonstration and students practical application. Reference books can be suggested.
