In this 12-week intensive class, teens will focus on building their skills and understanding of hot glass. This is a great course for a teen that has taken Diablo’s Teen Camp or the first time student. In the first quarter, Diablo’s experienced instructors will guide teens through a series of demonstrations and hands-on exercises to build their understanding of the medium, and teach the basic skills of gathering, blowing, and tool handling. In the second quarter, students will concentrate on making a set of matching drinking glasses. In the final quarter, students will be given the chance to move into the sculptural world, beginning with a variety of decorative bit techniques on larger vessels. A series of group projects will occur throughout the 12 weeks. From there we will see where their imagination takes them.
