Graal Masterclass
with Sonja Klingler

‘Graal’ is a glassblowing technique developed by Orrefors in Sweden in 1916.  Under Sonja’s expert guidance, students will have the opportunity to develop and master the technique. We will have some pre-prepared embryos ready for students to decorate and sandblast, then pick up, gather over, blow up and finish. Sonja will talk about colour combinations, colour compatibility and methods of decoration as well as the historical context of graal and its use in many contemporary glass artists’ work.  An intensive but rewarding class, with participants working in pairs, exploring ideas and practicing techniques until the graal process is mastered.

March 1 - 2
