Interested in learning the ancient art of glassblowing? Look no further than this weekend workshop. This beginner-friendly class will cover the fundamentals of working with furnace glass: gathering, shaping, blowing etc. Collaborating in teams, students will learn to use tools to manipulate and control the molten glass and explore basic color application techniques. Every student can expect to leave this two-day workshop with the ability to create simple functional forms of their own design along with an enhanced appreciation for the rich history of glassmaking.
