Question Where to study long term furnace?

Ciao tutti! Okay, I get asked all the time about places to study in Italy, but to be honest, as far as furnace study, I believe that here in the US or even other countries, there may be more varied possiblities to long term furnace study.

The inquiries I get are for not the small short workshop arrangements, but long term, say semester type or even at least monthly term places to study.

Anyone have suggestions of such schools to study serious furnace?

Hi Ofilia, I think there is more opportunity for furnace work than flameworking, which bugs me. But I know that Emporia State University in Kansas has a program. The Toledo Museum of Art has a blowing facility, Corning as well as Pilchuck, etc.

Hi Ofilia,
Been a long time since we've seen each other...hope some time to get you up to Glass Stock East! Sure had fun frying fish with you and Mari!

I know my incredibly talented gaffer friend Sue blows at Elements in Portland. She loves it there, they are super nice, helpful and even though she rents furnace time they are glad to show her things and help her. They never tell her she "isn't good enough to try something" and she has really come into her own with huge platters and unique pieces. She can't make them fast enough and is in numerous galleries that sell out almost as fast as she brings it in!

Where you learn, who you learn from and the vibe at the venue can make or break an artist! I know they have classes as well as many of the artists there like Sue apprentice people too, it is always a warm and inviting atmosphere when I've visited.

Ofilia - the Appalachian Center for Craft which is part of Tennessee Technological University has an excellent furnace glass program.

I was just up in Portland with my Wife and we visited Elements. Nice big shop and really Cool people. We walked in as they were starting a really large piece which I assisted on as soon as they found out I am a glassblower...it was fun. Again, Super nice people!

There has been a lot of programs shutting down due to the economy and a lot of others not far behind. A quick google search will show whats left.

Great input, everyone!!! I think it's great for people to add to this list, as some of us know friends who want to get into furance, or have friends who have had a good experience at furance studios. Sometimes furance can be a great collaboration for us lampworkers as well.

It's good to know places you recommend. I'm learning and always curious.

Thanks again!

VCU has a program too, and thanks Lisa, for posting about the Workhouse Arts Center. The Workhouse will be offering classes through Northern Virginia Community College in glass as well.

I believe the University of Texas in Arlington also has a course.
