Step up your glass game to the next level with one of our advanced workshops. This is a one of a kind opportunity to get direct coaching from some of the biggest names in the industry on whatever issues you may be facing and watch style that inspires.
Most Visiting Artist classes are suitable for Intermediate level students, but we do have some classes great for beginners as well. Please call us to find out more information about recommended levels for classes.
The Boro School provides a good amount of materials for each hands-on course, and lunch for all courses that are full-length days.
We cap most Visiting Artist classes at 12 students. Classes fill quickly so register early!
FOR VISITING ARTIST CLASSES, WE RECOMMEND ALL STUDENTS...
- Bring your own torch (and for some classes you may want your hand torch, too). Or you can rent a GTT Phantom from us for $25/day.
- Bring your own tools and glasses. We do have plenty of tools onsite to borrow if necessary.
- Buy extra glass here. Each Visiting Artist class will provide you with the bulk of the glass materials you will need, but you're an artist, so there are items you may want to use in your work not provided in the class. Good thing we have The Boro Store onsite for any extra materials you desire. Contact us ahead of time to make sure we have what you want.
We will announce more classes as we finalize details and dates. Thank You!
A 3 Day Class on Philanthropy and an Introduction to Lathe Work
Ben Belgrad, creator of Drinking Vessels, is offering a 3 day class on lathe basics and philanthropy at The Boro School on February 24-26. This course covers how to incorporate philanthropy into your art/work and is a basic introduction to lathe work for glass artists who have some experience with hollow shaping by hand. Each student receives hands-on lathe experience as well as a one-on-one session to discuss how to incorporate philanthropy into their own projects.
Class is limited to 8 students. The price is $750 and includes materials and lunch daily. Class runs from 10am to approximately 6pm each day. Students should bring their own torch (on quick connects), glasses, and hand tools.
We are asking students to make a donation of items - either for a local food pantry or homeless shelter - so that we can begin the class in the spirit of Philanthropy. We will post more details, including what to bring and where it’s going, when we have finalized our donation plans.
