Mixed and Mashed Up for Middle Schoolers
September 19 @ 4:00 pm - December 12 @ 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 12, 2018
A hands-on glass program for young artists, SiO2 Mixed and Mashed Up is an after school program specifically for students grades 6-8. It’s a great opportunity to get hands-on experience in a variety of glass making techniques. Classes meet once a week for 12 weeks. Students spend four weeks in three different studios at PGC including glassblowing, flameworking and kilnforming.
In the Hot Shop, learn the basics of gathering, blowing, and tool handling. In the Flame Shop, students use heat and gravity to shape molten glass at a stationary bench torch. In the Kiln Shop, students will be introduced to the world of kilnforming including casting, fusing and the creation of imagery using frits and powders. Scholarships available.
