EXPERIENCE the seductive and ancient art of glass blowing!  Turning a hot liquid into a solid physical form is magical.  This 6 hour class is designed for beginners, with the goal to play with glass and make beautiful glass objects.

Beginning with a short talk on safety and tool identification we will then dive right into the fun stuff.  Immediately, you will get a chance to gather glass, manipulate it with fire and tools, and form it into a work of art.   You will learn to make a unique colored glass paperweight masterpiece to bring home.

You’ll be guided by professional glassblowers Robert Kahl and Bill Bratton.

Completing this class will fill the prerequisite for the next Beginner B class.

Class minimum 2 students/maximum 4 students.   If the class minimum is not met, the class will be rescheduled to a later date.
