Brazee is thrilled to welcome back Visiting Instructor and Artist Nathan Sandberg for this brand new 5-day workshop! Don't miss your chance to learn from Nathan Sandberg - artist, educator, and a true innovator in kilnglass art.

Do you like big bowls and platters? Then this class is for you! Join Nathan in the studio to experience how he creates his XXL dropout vessels. Each participant will leave the workshop with a finished, very large (14” diameter) dropout vessel as well as a couple smaller test pieces AND the custom drop out ring used during the workshop. In class projects will be made of combinations of frit and rods but students will find that the methods used to form the blank are applicable to many different designs and forms of glass. This class is structured so that each student has access to their own kiln and therefore (nearly) complete control over the outcome of their vessel. All are skill levels are welcome. There are no prerequisites, though glass cutting experience and a willingness to experiment and have fun learning are helpful. 

Please Note: At the conclusion of the workshop each student will have a very large, sturdy glass bowl and a large dropout ring to transport home. The ring will be provided in sea worthy packaging at the beginning of class and slow, ground shipping arrangements can be made with Nathan or Brazee if necessary. Minimum fee to ship the mold: $40. Minimum fee to pack/ship class project: $70


Students must wear closed-toed shoes in the studio.

Cancellation Policy: Please be sure you can attend class at time of registration. 24 hour notice required to keep payment as CREDIT to be used towards another class. All sales final, no refunds.
