This class will focus on the creation of one or more glass corsages in a two day period. The first day will be the lampworking portion followed by wireworking and assemblage. The students will learn 5 sculptural shapes: the pod, the crater, the disc, the berry, and the wing.
Students will be required to bring their own tools and glass (104 only) and should have several years of lampworking experience, sorry - no beginners.
The students will be asked to email the names of the glass colors they intend to bring, and SaraSally will bring a color or two for them to spice it up and make them think beyond their own color choices. Experimentation with color combinations will be encouraged.
The students will be shown how to create glass sculptures using creative methods with the final design in mind. They will be making glass corsages of their OWN creation; each piece they create will be unique to them.
The second day, SaraSally will demonstrate methods to make the necklace, pins and bracelets. All students learn all techniques. SaraSally will have a wire packet for sale to complete projects.
104 glass, glasses/eye protection, graphite marver, mandrels, mashers, metal soup can, personal lampworking tools, raking tools, striker/matches, tweezer mashers, tweezers, writing materials.
