Service Description

Learn the basics of glassblowing in this four week class. In the first class, we will walk you through the basics of gathering glass out of the furnace and shaping it with 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 'suck bowl'. In the third class, we will build on these skills to make a clear glass tumbler. In the fourth class, we will refine skills as we move on to making colored tumblers. Each class will include roughly one hour of instruction and two hours of practice time. Missed classes: Because of the cost involved in running this class, we are unable to offer make-up sessions for missed classes. We are happy to offer a private lesson at our regular rate if you need a make up session. Ages: 16+ Tuition includes class fee and personal protective gear. Please note: participants will be required to wear 'natural fiber clothing' when glassblowing. Cotton tshirts, jeans, etc. are recommended. Absolutely no leggings.
