The non-competitive atmosphere at the Folk School leaves space for exploration. I love to hear the excitement and sheer delight of students melting a glass rod for the first time in the flame of a torch. I never tire of hearing, “Wow! Amazing! Look at how it moves! Oh, I love it’s color!”
Students learn glass is an amazing material that they can heat up, move, bend, and cut to create their own personalized beads, pendants, or you-name-it!
I enjoying watching new glass enthusiasts emerge from a class, excited about the dance they have discovered involving light, air, color and fire, all with glass.
