Tried a Make It! Glass Blowing class but want to learn more? This class is for you. This class introduces students to the fundamentals of glassblowing. Students will receive an overview of the studio and equipment in the Hot Shop, shop safety, using standard glass blowing tools and shop etiquette. Students learn the properties of hot glass, how to gather out of the 2,100 degree furnace and how to blow bubbles into the hot glass. Students will also learn how to be a good partner/assistant; an important skill when working with hot glass. By the end of class students will make 2-3 projects and gain an appreciation for techniques needed to work with hot glass.
