Nikolaj Christensen (CC on this email) at East Falls Glassworks sent me 
the following information about a special glassblowing class, and asked 
that I forward the info to the list.

East Falls Glassworks* has an upcoming class we have scheduled for mid 

Boyd Sugiki and Lisa Zerkowitz are coming to do a 2 day workshop and if 
you are familiar with their work and reputation as teachers, you know 
it's a fantastic opportunity for those that can make it.

Nikolaj Christensen will be helping as TA and we're going to also offer 
the following Saturday as an optional day for those in the class to run 
over and practice what they learned with their teammates for a 
discounted rate.
Boyd Sugiki and Lisa Zerkowitz teach Tumblers and Bowls (2 Days)*

Refine your skills and increase your confidence by focusing on the 
tumbler and bowl. These two deceptively simple forms contain a wealth of 
skill building information. Discover how to form the glass by utilizing 
your heat effectively. Working efficiently, creating thinner pieces and 
building confidence will be the goals of the course, as instruction is 
personalized and detailed to your level of experience.

Boyd Sugiki and Lisa Zerkowitz are glassblowers whose work speaks for 
itself. As founders and operators of Two Tone Studios they are 
responsible for a line of functional work that is both 
straight-forwardly utilitarian and also possessing of a undeniable 
elegance of design. In their personal work their interest develops along 
different lines, but with a solid commitment to aesthetic principles as 
a basic tenet. This class will focus on the fundamental skills that 
allow them to make what they make.

This class runs on *Thursday and Friday, April 12th and 13th from 9:00AM 
to 5:00PM*.

Depending on student interest, the following Saturday (April 14th, 
10:00AM-5:00PM) is reserved as an optional practice day, to work on and 
reinforce the skills learned in class. Cost for the class is $350, the 
practice day is an additional $90.
