Special Guest Instructor:

Nathan Sandberg
“Techniques in Vitrigraph”

 

Taking a thoughtful approach to using the Vitrigraph kiln we can create cane and murrini that rival those created in a hot shop.Capitalizing on the ways glass can be arranged in and flows from a crucible, students in this innovative workshop will learn to create reproducible decorative canes and intricate murrini using the Vitrigraph Kiln.

These elements can then, immediately, be used in other kiln-glass projects. Students will be handling and manipulating hot, molten glass. No prerequisites.


 
August 8, 9, 10:  9a – 5p

Must attend all four Sessions!

 

Nathan Sandberg is an artist and educator living and working in Porltand, Oregon. His primary material is glass although his installations commonly make use of other materials like wood, metal and concrete. Aside from relentlessly producing artwork he has made a name for himself as one of the top kiln-glass educators teaching today. When he can’t be found in his studio where he focuses on kilncast glass he can be found presenting fresh, innovative curriculum at a wide range of studios, schools and art centers around the globe.

 

COST:  $575 per person includes studio & class time, instructor guidance, tools and our glass allocation that you will need for this project.

db Studio & Gallery’s – Open Studio


  Open Studio is a unique opportunity and a big perk for those who take db Studio classes. Bring your Bullseye glass and tools to the studio and learn diverse methods, studio practices and be inspired by fellow members of the glass community. A db Studio staff member will be present during these self-guided sessions.

Eligibility:  Anyone who has taken a db Galley class that has included glass cutting may attend open studio sessions.

Times Offered:  Open Studio days and hours are sent once a month to those who sign up to be included on the email notification list. They are also posted in the studio as well.

Cost:  The basic rate is $5/hour, and the required minimum is 2 hours. Additional charges for studio time, firings, and mold rental may apply (below) and must be paid at the time you pick up work.

Firing Fees:  

Kiln fuse per (24 hour period) in GL-24                                                  $30

Kiln slump         ”                         ”                                                           $25

  • Make a reservation for studio time by calling 509-627-0266 or emailing info@BarnardGriffin.com.

  • When designing your pieces, factor in our shelf dimensions (about 21″ square for a GL-24) plus a ½” distance between your piece and the shelf edge, in all directions.
  • Choose slumping molds before designing your pieces. Molds may be fired together with others to fill a complete kiln, if the firing schedules are similar. Note: Dimensions listed in the catalog for slumping molds are for the mold at its largest points and are not intended as glass-cutting measurements.
  • Studio storage space is non-secured and limited, you may rent space in the studio, and you must pick up your fired pieces in a timely fashion.
  • With notice it is possible to arrange to bring in projects for firing outside of Open Studio. Call or email info@barnardgriffin.com to make arrangements. You will have limited workspace and 30 minutes per shelf to assemble your pieces.
