About The Event
In this intro to glass blowing group class, students will learn the basics of gathering out of the furnace, using the jacks, and will create their very own colored marbles or paperweights. Students are encouraged to work on skill building such as: marvering techniques (rolling the glass on metal tables), shaping with wood and wet carbon tools, and more!
This class is designed for the more hands on student who wants to learn glass blowing from the ground up. Students will do 90% of all artwork which is much different from our other group classes where students only work 50% of the time with the artist to make a perfect product. Artworks from this session will not be perfect. Artwork will take 24 hrs to cool, includes 1 color extra colors are avail. for purchase at the studio for $5 and up. Contact us with any questions!
