Networking, as it relates to glass, is a specific technique that is accomplished by melting small diameter glass rods into laced, web-like patterns. In this workshop, students will learn some of the fundamental skills involved in creating networked objects. Students will begin by working on small networked objects in order to learn some basic networking techniques. As skills develop and progress, participants will continue to work on a larger, unique pendant light project, that will involve designing, problem-solving, and skill development throughout the rest of the week.

COVID-19 Notes (updated 6/1/2021)

We will continue enforcing a face covering policy for all staff, students and gallery guests. Face coverings will remain mandatory when entering and moving about the building and when teaching or taking a class. We have not officially set a benchmark to fully roll back this policy.

Traditionally, SiNaCa Studios has had a "the more, the merrier" policy for our classes, but these are not traditional times. So, to keep our small space safe for everyone, we have enacted a "Participants Only" policy for all classes. Guardians accompanying participating minors will be the only exception. All non-participating observers will be asked to remain outside of the building. Guests are welcome to visit the on-site glass gallery.

Please refer to the FAQ section of our website to see all measures that we are taking to keep our staff and participants safe. If you are a first-time participant, you can find a link to our Risk and Release form on the FAQ page. You are welcome to bring a completed form with you. We will also have blank forms available during class check-in. ALL participants are required to have a completed form on file.
