Awaken the Beast: Sculpting Animals in Hot Glass with Grant Garmezy
SGS announces the return of its master series glass workshops with Grant Garmezy’s “Awaken the Beast: Sculpting Animals in Hot Glass.” 
This four-day, hands-on class will explore the potential of working with hot glass as a sculptural medium. The workshop will focus on using both solid and blown sculpting techniques to create animals and animal-inspired sculptures. Participants will employ a variety of torches and sculpting techniques to bring animal-inspired sculptures to life, including solid sculpting, inside sculpting, assembly of parts, color application, garage use, and - most importantly - teamwork.
