Default ITALIAN BOOT CAMP with Charlie Correll @ EGS

ITALIAN BOOT CAMP with Charlie Correll

$600 + $50 material fee (non-refundable)

September 27-October 1, Mon-Fri (10am-5pm)

In this five-day course we will cover basic training in Venetian thinware blowing, starting with cups, and then goblets, including optic molds, twists, garage work and cane. The Italian approach of “treating the bubble as a whole” will be demonstrated and stressed. Demonstrations will include crystal goblets, cane pulling for cane pickups and cane goblets. Bring your cup jacks if you’ve got ‘em. Bring color for cane. Skills learned in this class will transfer to every piece you make!

Intermediate to advanced level.

CHARLIE CORRELL in 1971, took a part time job blowing glass at the Jamestown Glasshouse of 1608 while attending the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Today, he works in his studio in Conway, Massachusetts blowing glass and building hotshop equipment for private studios and educational institutions all over the country and the world. Adapting industrial techniques to the small scale of the studio, he designed and built his first recuperative glass furnace in 1981. The new designs resulted in better glass, more durable furnaces, and a 60% reduction in his fuel consumption. As word spread, and as the field changed, the need for quality glass melters was met by Correll Glass Studio. He has held furnace building workshops around the country, starting in Corning in 1990. Venues include Urban Glass in Brooklyn and The Penland School For Crafts in North Carolina.
