Start with the basic skills of flameworking (a form of glassblowing), then further explore the possibilities of Borosilicate glass. Experience and time behind the torch will enhance your ability and comfort level as a glassblower. In this class, our instructor will guide students through beginner to intermediate skills and projects. As students demonstrate comptency, they are welcome to work independently, and can expect 1-on-1 coaching throughout the series. Safety is an extremely high priority in this class. Please wear natural fiber clothing (such as cotton or wool) and if you wear glasses, contact lenses are preferable.
This class is a series. Participants must sign up for all 3 classes. Participants must be 15 or older to participate. The cost of the class includes glass, use of tools, and other studio equipment.
