When we work without attachment to outcome, we are changed by what we make.
Students in this class will build a plethora of equally sized single-layer sheet glass elements designed to be assembled in a myriad of ways toward multiple outcomes. Doing so will reveal the limitless possibility inherent in embracing uncertainty and offer a strong new personal direction to pursue. Instructor-led exploratory drawing exercises will help you to establish a starting point. After that, the sky is the limit!
Relevant experimentation with materials and strategies for invention are strongly encouraged. It will be up to you to decide upon an appropriate combination of assorted processes and materials as you move through this work. Whichever approach you select, you will be guided and supported by consultations, conversations, demos, and examples of breakaway making.
This playful workshop has been carefully designed to remind you how to trust yourself to see clearly, work intuitively, risk everything and move confidently forward with ever evolving work.
