Learn the basics of sandblasting while designing and making a plate. You’ll start by creating (or choosing) a simple design, which you’ll cut out of a sandblast-resistant material that you apply to a glossy, fused glass blank. After sandblasting the design into the blank, you’ll set it up to slump on a mold during an overnight firing, during which the glass will conform to the mold and the blasted areas will develop a semi-matte finish. Your finished plate will be available for pick-up a few days after class. This class also qualifies you to do sandblasting in our Coldworking Open Studios.
