Drop Forming and Murrini Making

Instructor:  Brad Walker

Three days

By special request, we’ve come up with a workshop that combines two of our most popular classes — drop formed bowls and murrini making with the vitrigraph kiln.

While we won’t drop the murrini we make (that would take a four or five day class), we’ll teach you everything you need to know to make murrini and drop vases and bowls in the design of your choice.

On day one we’ll create a blank from sheet glass and make the mold for our drop.  Then on the second day, our finished blank is dropping in the kiln, we’ll try our hand at a few murrini making projects.  And finally, on the third day we’ll coldwork our drop and assemble some of our murrini for fusing in the kiln.

It promises to be a fast pace, hands-on experience covering both techniques.  You’ll leave with a drop formed bowl, a custom made drop ring, vitrigraph kiln murrini, and the knowledge to create much, much more!


Familiarity with glass cutting and with basic fusing and slumping techniques is highly recommended.

10:00 to 4:00 first two days, 10:00 to 3:00 last day
