Since 2011 Joshua Dopp of “Highway Hotshop” has been bringing glass blowing and glass casting workshops to this very inspirational location. This year Joshua offers two 2-day workshops leading up to the Arcosanti Convergence festival. Additionally, if you are interested in having something specifically made for you by the artists of HH we are offering collaborative experiences.
Dates: Oct 5-6, Oct 9-10 Cost: $300
This class starts with an introduction to Arcosanti and Site Tour, and will then include: glassblowing safety and best practices, proper technical positioning, proper tool use, and a brief history of glass working and latest trends. You will learn how to make a drinking glass. Please wear closed-toed shoes and bring drinking water. Protective eyewear is recommended. Lodging is available in a shared dorm for $25 per night, or private guestroom for $50 per night. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your class will be held at Arcosanti, the world’s first prototype Arcology and Urban Laboratory. Arcology is the integration of Architecture and Ecology and you will be taught how these concepts relate to the content of your class. You will experience being at Arcosanti for the duration of your class and have the opportunity to meet residents and learn about the project.
