Intermediate Skills Workshop is designed to introduce and develop an array of new skills and techniques for students who have exceeded the level of training offered by the Public Glass core curriculum ( Levels 1-4) Level 4 is the prerequisite for this class. The session will cover how to make a bowl and all of its ups and downs. We will start with making a high bowl shape and working our way to down to a low bowl.
