Subject: [PA-NJ Glassblowers] Don Gonzalez glassblowing class information

I am forwarding the Don Gonzalez glassblowing class information below.  Don's hot shop is in Stockton, New Jersey.

gaffer at glassblower.info

Glass Artist, Don Gonzalez, will be conducting weekend workshops in glassblowing and workshops casting glass in sand from March 1 thru April 30 in his studio in Stockton, New Jersey.
In addition to producing glass art in his studio for 30 years, Don has 17 years experience teaching glassblowing and sculpture in glass on the college level.  His work is in significant museum collections including the White House, and he is the recipient of four artist fellowships from the New Jersey Council on the Arts and a fellowship from the Creative Glass Center of America.  
In the glassblowing workshops, you will acquire a working knowledge of how to blow vessels with hot glass.  The first two days are about learning basic control of the glass and on the third day we cover a variety of color application techniques.  Each workshop is limited to four students.  Cost is $325 for three days, friday-sunday, 10am -4pm.  
Glassblowing workshop schedule:
            March 4-6.....................4 openings
            March 10-12..................4 openings
Also available is a one day private intensive which will give you an equal amount of access to me and the glass as you would get in a three day workshop.  Cost is $400.  This arrangement is ideal for those who can't free up three days.  
A one day intensive is also an ideal situation for those who have had some exposure to working with hot glass.  A private intensive in my studio will help refine basic blowing skills and save you numerous hours of trial and error that learning glassblowing skills requires. 
Contact me for schedule by e-mail gonzalez_6007 at msn.com  (the space between z_6 is an underscore) or phone 908-996-6664.
In the sand casting glass workshops, we design in the negative, in sand, and pour hot glass into that negative space.  The result is sand cast glass 3-D sculpture  or tile.  You may also design sculpture employing multiple components cast in glass to create larger glass sculpture.  Colored glass and copper wire and copper sheet images can be included on your castings surface or encased inside your casting.  I can provide an information sheet about sand casting that will help you plan your mold making.  Sand casting glass is an exciting process for creating sculptural glass which doesn't require the skills of a glassblower.  Casting classes are two days and the revised cost is $200.  Contact me if you need guidance and advice in preparing copper inclusions and hot glass inclusions for your casting weekend. 
Sand Cast Glass Schedule:
            March 18-19..........open
            March 25-26..........open
            April 1-2................open
            April 8-9................open 
Please call 908-996-6664, cell:908-303-6302, or e-mail.
