Beginning in April and continuing through August, these one-week master classes will offer instruction in a variety of glass techniques including glassblowing, flameworking, glass casting, cutting, painting and hot sculpting.
Each teaching artist is internationally recognized and brings with them a set of highly specific and refined skill sets unique to each studio in the Glass Pavilion. The classes will run one week, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with lunch provided. Each week-long class will cost $950 for Museum members and $1,000 for non-members.
Many of the classes are open to artists of all skill levels but some will require intermediate or advanced experience. Each class will be limited to nine students and scholarships are available. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.
As travel and gathering guidelines are subject to change in accordance with COVID 19 protocol, Master Class may be affected. In preparation for the classes, please refer to these sources for national and international travel.
The Museum has a number of scholarship opportunities available for youth and adult students. Students submitting a Scholarship Application Form cannot register for class in advance. Only one scholarship form may be submitted per class, but multiple forms may be submitted for multiple class requests. Scholarships are competitive and the volume of submissions is high; unfortunately applying does not guarantee automatic approval. Completed scholarship applications for glass studio master classes must be received by April 5, 2021.
