Arts & Entertainment WCU to offer summer glassblowing classes

Western Carolina University, in cooperation with the Jackson County Green Energy Park, will offer three series of introductory glassblowing classes that teach participants to create simple blown and solid forms.

Participants may choose to attend classes from 9 a.m. to noon Fridays beginning June 3; 6-9 p.m. Mondays beginning June 6; and 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays beginning June 7. Classes meet four times and cost $270, with the option of two additional meetings for a total of $390. All classes will be held at the Jackson County Green Energy Park in Dillsboro.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of glassblowing through demonstrations, exercises and oneon- one instruction, as well as safety in the studio, proper use of glass tools and hot-shop etiquette. No experience is required.

The instructor, Clayton Hufford, earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and a master’s degree in fine arts, with a focus on glass, from the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York in 2010. For the past four years, Hufford has worked in a glass studio near Burnsville and has assisted classes in the studio at Penland School of Crafts. He lives in Asheville.
