Glass in the Fourth Dimension with Martin Janecky and Gary Schwartz


A master glass sculptor and a renowned stop motion animator collaborate with students to create stop-motion animation with three dimensional objects formed in the Hot Shop. In this intensive project-based workshop, hone your hot glass skills, learn to stop motion from a materials-based perspective and learn about animation as a medium for self expression. Intermediate glass forming skills required; no animation skills required.
