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 two styles of paperweight masterpieces to bring home.
You’ll be guided by professional glass blowers Mark Einert and Robert Kahl.
Completing this class will fill the prerequisite for upcoming Beginner B classes.
