Event Details

Perfect class for anyone who wants to see and feel what torch glassblowing is like in a low-risk, super fun, and relaxed class to get their “feet wet.” Participants will receive personal instruction about glass working basics, safety, equipment use, torch, and glass techniques. You will be making your every own Clear Creation (necklace pendant, paperweight, and/or sculptural form) in this lesson! This course is designed for beginners who are enthusiastic about trying new things and want to learn the mysterious art of glass working in a safe and encouraging environment. Register here.

The instructor will go over basic safety and torch use, then he will demonstrate how to create the project, then students will have one on one instruction while they take turns on the torch. (One student will create while the other observes, then students will switch).

Each ticket is for one student. Sign up with a partner! so you can enjoy this exciting new experience with your significant other, bestie, or family member. This class has a max of two students. Your ticket covers all class fees which pay for fuel and materials, equipment use, and kiln annealing (pendants will need to go through an overnight annealing cycle and can be picked up at the Makerspace the following day or if you live out of town can be sent to you via postal service).
