Hot Shop Skills
This workshop is designed for the people who will be taking the workshop from Darren Peterson in the spring. We will be working to hone our skills in the hot shop to build independance. Students will be required to challenge themselves by doing most of the work by themselves under the guidance of Joan and Al Hiebert. Our main project will be to make a blown pumpkin, gourd, fish, Ogopogo sculpture with one or more attached squiggles. The idea is to have a blown sculpture with an attached piece. Students will also practice manipulating (pulling) the glass to create various shapes. The goal is to be able to feel comfortable manipulating the glass when we do our workshop with Darren.

I retired in January, 2002 and have devoted greater time to glass design and production. My husband, Al, and I have built a glass studio at Shield’s Town site for cold, warm, and hot glass. For the past ten years it has been an incredible opportunity to focus on my passion, hot glass. My love for experimentation and commitment to lifelong learning is the basis for developing glass blowing and casting techniques.
