Have you ever wanted to try glassblowing? Well here’s your chance!
Learn the glass blowing basics in this multi week course. You will learn to gather molten glass from the furnace and shape it into various forms with a focus on the simple blown vessel. The instruction will focus on a team approach to glassblowing, with an emphasis on safety, proper tool use, basic techniques, and materials. This class is appropriate for students with limited or no hot shop experience. You may also wish to take this class a second time in order to continue to develop and refine basic skills before moving on to Hot Glass II. Each time you take it, you will gain confidence and skill as your passion for glass grows. After taking Hot Glass I and II you will be eligible to rent time in our Hot Shop on your own! All weekday night classes will meet for 3 hours for 7 consecutive weeks, and weekend classes will meet for 4 hours for 5 weeks.
Our next Hot Glass 1 runs April 23 – June 4, each Saturday from 10am-2pm, skipping the week of May 7 for our Spring Sale, and May 28 for Memorial Day.
