Hot Glass I – Series Class
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. After taking Hot Glass I you will be eligible to rent time in our Hot Shop with a partner during regularly staffed hours, or under the guidance of an approved member. Wear close-toed shoes and clothes made from natural fibers. Safety glasses will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Bring a notebook or sketchbook for notes. Feel free to bring a water bottle and snacks. Be prepared for an exciting experience!
The class requires at least 2 participants to run and is 15-20 hours of instruction depending on enrollment.

Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30pm – 9:00pm for 8 classes starting June 7.
