Harness glass flow to create vessels with fabulous colors and functional forms! In this online class, widely-respected artist and instructor Nathan Sandberg will teach you how.
Led by Sandberg's detailed video demonstration and live dialogue during class, you'll learn how to create a flow vessel that will be seven inches in diameter and about three inches deep. At the end of the process, have no doubt: you'll be flowed away!
The live, online aspects of the class will happen in two sessions.
- The first of these is a Viewing Party where you go through the class video (minus the bonus footage, which can be watched beforehand) with your cohort and instructor, Nathan Sandberg. Students will be able to ask questions and get live answers throughout this session.
- The second live, online session will take place several weeks later, after you’ve had time to try the technique. During Session 2 you will review photos and notes of creations that you and fellow students have shared online, discussing processes and outcomes with Nathan.
This class teaches coldworking methods that make use of a modular saw, a lap wheel, and a sandblaster. If you are interested in adding coldworking equipment to your studio this is an excellent opportunity to see new tools in action. At a minimum, access to a tile saw is recommended for class. Tile saws are often available to rent from equipment rental centers. Studio rental of most tools is also available at Bullseye Resource Centers to those who have taken coldworking classes at Bullseye in the past. Alternatives to using coldworking methods with simpler, more accessible tools are an option that will be covered in class. Questions? Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe this entire package is an exceptional way to learn! It’s an opportunity to get a thorough, step-by-step understanding of how to create your own amazing drop out vessel. So get ready to join two live sessions with Nathan Sandberg, to share your work, to inspire and be inspired, and to take your home studio to wonderful new dimensions.
Requirements & Recommendations
- Recommended for intermediate-to-advanced students with access to a kiln.
- We will be using Zoom for the live class sessions. For optimal streaming, Zoom recommends using their desktop program or mobile app. (Only use their web service if you cannot access the other options.) In addition, we strongly recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with all of the following: high-speed internet, a web cam, a microphone, and speakers. A tablet may suffice. Phones, however, should be avoided. Smartphone screens will be too small, and a landline phone will not allow for any interactivity.
- For additional help navigating Zoom, watch our Zoom orientation video.
The Class Guide: At least a day before the class, log into the classes website and go to Account > My Available Downloads where you'll be able to download the Class Guide. It contains the instructions and links you'll need for accessing class.
