About Your Host

Diablo Glass School opened in 2001, creating a public access glass arts studio in Boston, Massachusetts. Diablo is a place where beginning and experienced glass artists are welcome to share a nurturing environment, to grow and develop their creative skills in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Diablo offers different level classes and facilities in various disciplines, exposing a broad spectrum of people to exciting glass techniques in glassblowing, flameworking, fused glass and stained glass. By connecting students to professional national and international glass artists, we provide a learning experience that constantly offers new information and challenges. Diablo currently has partnerships with institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston University, Massachusetts College of Arts and Design, Decordova Museum and Sculptural Park, and Verlocal.

What we'll do

In this exciting new class you will learn the basics of three glass techniques: fusing, glass etching (sandblasting) and slumping. First, students will create a fused piece with iridescent glass. Then they will apply a resist onto the piece and cut out a design, followed by sandblasting the glass piece. Lastly, they will remove the resist and slump the glass on a mold to fire-polish the surface and shape it into a three dimensional object. Thursdays 9:00am - 12:00pm
