Don Friedlich Workshop at Corning Museum of Glass June 24-29

Coldworking for Jewelry and Small Sculpture June 24-29

This one week information filled workshop at the world class Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass will focus on making glass wearable. Adding cold work to glass jewelry can greatly expand the form and surface options for the finished work. Students will develop an understanding of sculpting and finishing glass in a range of forms. They will explore various surface finishes, engraving, and inventive approaches to both carving and patterning with a sandblaster. We will also be working with dichroic glass and UV cured adhesives. Forms can be finished as jewelry or serve as sculptural studies for larger work. No glass working experience needed.

A former SNAG President, Don Friedlich is a leading figure in contemporary jewelry. A graduate of RISD, his jewelry has been shown in museums all over the world and is in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum; Smithsonian American Art Museum; the Museum of Fine Arts Boston; The Corning Museum of Glass, and many others.
