GLSS 210 - Malleable Methods: Approaches to Hot Glass and Research

GLSS 210 is a studio-based course designed to provide students an in-depth introduction to hot glass techniques and processes. Students in this course will be challenged to make connections between their ideas and approaches to the material through a variety of methods. Approaches to idea generation and idea development will be integrated into each project assigned. Key working strategies exploring the fundamentals of solidworking and glass blowing will be introduced through discussion, demonstrations, and projects. Students will be encouraged to innovate with the skills and knowledge gained in class using hot glass processes and coldworking techniques by re-interpreting and applying what they have learned to assigned thematic investigations.

Note: Students intending to major in Glass are strongly encouraged to take GLSS 212 in the same semester as GLSS 210.
