2018 SUMMER + FALL PROGRAMS
Enjoy this sneak peek of Pilchuck Glass School's Summer + Fall Programs. Full catalog and application instructions coming soon!
This summer, key words structure the dialogue and focus for session courses. Form + Function, Ephemeral, Metrics, Method, Archetype, and Corporeal provide a framework for inquiry. The Fall Program offers a one-week equally immersive experience at a different pace. Instructors and Artists in Residence (AiRs) have been selected for their distinctive relationship to their session’s keyword. The themes act as a campus wide parameter, outlining the focus of each course and providing a collective springboard for thoughtful interpretation and the creation of pieces infused with content.
The concepts that rise from the exploration of course themes will be realized with hot and cold glass in areas such as glassblowing, hot-glass sculpting, sand- and kiln-casting, fusing, neon, painting, flame working, printmaking, mixed-media sculpture, engraving, 3D- modeling, printing and electronics.
Pilchuck’s Hotshop, Annex, Studio Building, Printshop, Flatshop, Woods and Metal Studio and Botlab are staffed by experienced coordinators to facilitate an almost limitless exploration of the material.
The courses offered this summer and fall offer a wide range of learning, skill levels and methods – the only question is, which keyword speaks to you?
