Knitting with Glass
Learn to knit with glass! Working with strands of wax, students will knit small objects to transform into glass using the lost-wax-casting process. The class will cover all aspects of glass casting: wax-working, spruing waxes, mold-making, kiln schedules, divesting and cold-working. All levels are welcome. But beginners should be prepared to be challenged.
The Glass Furnace is in the Turkish countryside north of Istanbul, on the Asian side of the Bosphorous river near the Black Sea. This will be my third time teaching there. It is a magical place.
