This series of E-courses is designed for all levels of beadmaker in soft glass.
This class is designed by glass master Dr. Julie Anne Denton and is a stand-alone course, but purposefully designed as a follow-up to Julie 1: Animals in Soft Glass. This course will build upon the techniques learned in Julie 1 using the figure to further develop your off-mandrel learning curve in the comfort of your own studio. In this E-course channel you will learn how to make a torso, a Venus, a full figure with closed legs, a full figure with “dancing” legs, full figure with arms and legs both close to the body and separate. We will also touch upon feet, hands and heads.
These forms will teach you a variety of more tricky techniques. We will be making these figures in both soft glass and borosilicate glass, although if you prefer just to use one of the glass types this is fine.
This class includes 10 demos which should take a few weeks to complete if you include your practicing time. These tutorials show you how to make a torso, a Venus, a Cycladic figure, a Renaissance figure in the Italian style, figure hospital and a fully-formed tree spirit in soft and hard glass.
Class includes one complimentary one on one consultation with ZGS founder Dr Julie Anne Denton to help you with the tricky bits, whilst receiving personal help and encouragement with the projects. It is advisable to use this consultation as our participants find the them invaluable.
Visual technical handouts are also provided which help you remember the steps for all the demonstrations at a glance. By the end of this course you will feel like an entirely new world of sculpting off-mandrel through flameworked glass has opened up to you. Please remember, expect breakages and tears. What we are creating is tricky and takes A LOT of practice, logic, patience, and an inquiring mind.
