Behind the Glass: The Grand Bohemian Troupe of Fancy Glass Workers

For positively one night only on January 10, see The Grand Bohemian Troupe of Fancy Glass Workers at The Corning Museum of Glass. Over a span of 300 years, traveling flameworkers entertained and educated audiences around the world on the art, s­­cience, and skill of glassmaking. Learn about their lives and witness a modern take on their performances, featuring flameworkers who carry on some of the same traditions today.

Join librarian Rebecca Hopman and flameworkers Bandhu Dunham, David Sandidge, Caitlin Hyde, and Eric Goldschmidt for a special program and demonstration about this little-known facet of glass history. Bring the kids for a fun and fascinating evening; the first 50 through the door will receive a glass souvenir made by our talented troupe members.

Glass Animals: Foundations of Form


There was a time when making glass animals was the way to make a living as a glassblower. Now making beads, jewelry and various types of functional glass are also options. But making animals is still a great way to learn techniques, as well as elements of design, self-organization and composition. This one-day class will use animal making as a vehicle to explore new ways to look at glass. You will learn tricks that can be added to your existing repertoire. All experience levels welcome; there will be something to learn for everyone, even experienced glass artists.

Component-Based and Kinetic Sculptural Techniques

This class will focus on construction techniques for successfully combining components into elaborate sculptures. We will start with some fundamentals that apply to all types of multi-part designs, and branch out into tricky assembly methods and kinetic (moving) mechanisms. Everyone will find something to learn from this instructor with over 40 years of experience behind the torch. The information and methods can be applied to functional pieces as well as goblets, decorative sculpture, conceptual art projects and design of production work. Philosophical discussions will probably also happen.
