What is offered at Potekglass studios?
Our Try-iT! classes are introductory level glass-making classes, geared toward the novice who would like to experience what it means to manipulate glass.
Each individual Try-iT! course will spend 3 hours focused upon a few fundamentals specific to the type of glass used and the technique highlighted. While each class highlights different elements, techniques from each class will contribute to a better understanding - and may be applied - to a wide expanse of glass craft techniques.
Make-iT! classes are project-based, all-day workshops (10am-5pm, with a 1-hour lunch break). Instructed often by visiting artists as well as in-studio staff, these classes are formulated to be appropriate for the beginning to intermediate level glass-worker. Participants in Make-iT! classes need to have either taken a Try-iT! class or have some previous experience with glass. These Make-iT! intermediate level workshops will facilitate an opportunity for students to focus on a specific technique, through personalized instruction and core projects.
