Come warm up with hot glass in November and December! In the introduction to glassblowing mini course, Molten Glass as Material, students will gather molten glass from the furnace at 2150 degrees, add color, inflate and shape the glass into paperweights, sculptures, ornaments, and cups. In the one-day workshop Glassblowing Intensive, each student will make three introductory glass pieces including a solid paperweight, a blown glass ornament, and a hot sculpted flower. For those interested in making smaller scale glass sculptures, beads, pendants, and marbles we have a Sculptural Flameworking course where students will learn to specific heat glass rods in the flame of a torch to shape the glass into their desired form. All skill levels welcome in all of these classes. Gift certificates available!
