Beginning Glass Blowing

Learn the basics of glass blowing in this four week class. In the first class will walk you through the basics of gathering glass out of the furnace and shaping it with a a variety of tools.  We will work on getting the glass the shape we want and keeping it on center. Once we are comfortable with that we will learn how to apply color and make a paperweight. In the second class we will move on to blowing, making a clear glss tumbler. In the third class we will build on these skills to make a tumbler incorporating color. In the fourth class will refine skills as we move on to making vases.

Each class will include roughly one hour of instruction and two hours of practice time.
