For those looking to experience hot glass and take home a beautiful handmade creation
For groups of 3-8, each participant will make one piece with my guidance. No experience required, ages 8+. Class options are cups, floppy bowls, paperweights, or vases. Glass color is provided.
This class is designed for couples or any two person team looking to bond over hot glass. With my guidance you will assist each other in creating two pieces each, totaling in 4 pieces to take home. Class options are cups, floppy bowls, paperweights, or vases. Glass color is provided.
Sometimes making one piece isn't enough. If you need more, consider these options.
This is for participants with little to no glassblowing experience. You will learn to make your own work through skill building exercises, repetition, and most likely breaking lots of glass. You will learn how to gather, shape, add color, and more. Some glass color is provided. 3 hour minimum, which can be flexible if necessary. Extremely difficult but very rewarding!
This option is for renters who have some basic skills under their belt but are not yet comfortable working without guidance. Being able to gather your own glass successfully and bringing your own glass color is a pre-requisite for this option. You will be assisted in creating pieces of your own design. 3 hour minimum.
This option is available to established glass artists. You will have access to the 200 lb WDG furnace melting Spruce Pine batch, 15" max glory hole, pick-up ovens and spacious annealer. No glass color provided. Limited pipes, it is recommended to bring your own. Oxy/propane available upon request. Assistance is available for an additional rate of $25 per hour. 3 hour minumum.
