Art 448 Lab 007:

Glass: Intro to Lampworking

with Heather Sutherland

About this Course

The summer glass class will focus on a flameworking technique called “networking.” Working with a torch, students will effectively learn to draw in 3D with glass. Translucent glass rods will be transformed from linear to infinitely scalable spatial forms. Our final project will focus on activating site-specific spaces with this technique. No prerequisites are required for this class; open to all students! Come get your flame on!

“UW Madison’s glass program was the first university glass program in the US, and continues a strong tradition of glass art education 50 years later. UW Madison offers undergraduate and graduate programs in glass art. The Glass Studio also hosts various public events, including the the Glass Lab Open House, which occurs near the end of each semester, and the Biennial Neon and Light Exhibition.” — UW-Madison Glass Facebook
