With more than 25 years of glass-blowing experience, Peter Patterson teaches how to forge and form glass-based creations during in-depth beginner classes. In this three-hour introductory course, silica scholars will glean skills in molding shapes and creating colors as they sculpt forms from the glowing material. Students choose two projects from three possible creations, sculpting a one-of-a-kind penholder, business-card holder, or paperweight, each of which can be cooled to a lustrous sheen or left molten for volcano-situated office cubicles. Classes are kept to a maximum of 20 students, allowing for a more personal approach and ample time for questions. Each student's original pieces can be picked up 48 hours after the course. Like living in a beehive, students should be sure to wear cotton fabrics, closed-toe gym shoes, and socks that cover the ankle.

Peter Patterson Glassworks

Though glass art has been Peter Patterson’s career for more than 35 years, glimpses of his other passions come through in his pieces, from his knowledge of plants to his scuba explorations of exotic seascapes. Indeed, he shapes searing-hot glass with the same fluidity as water, drawing on lessons from master teachers and his own background as an illustrator. The forms often flow around pre-fused decorations and even phosphorous elements that glow in the dark. At the end of class, students observe as Patterson creates his complex sea-form vase. Afterward, students may purchase this demo piece along with memorial keepsakes and incandescent light bulbs at a discount in the gallery.
