Intro to Glass Blowing (April 13 & April 20)

April 13, 2023 - April 20, 2023



Thursday April 13th & Thursday April 20th

5pm – 9pm – Both Days

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.

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: Students must have taken one of our “Make it” level classes or equivalent prior glass blowing experience in order to register for this workshop.

Students must be 12 years or older.  Students under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

All tools, materials, and finished project included with ticket price.

Projects created in our studios will be ready for pickup 5-7 days after completion.

Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment. See our full Cancellation Policy HERE.

The safety and comfort of our staff, students, and customers is our top priority. Masks are recommended in the studios, but not required.

If you are feeling unwell, please reschedule your class or visit for a time when you are feeling better. At this time, we are applying more liberal rescheduling terms for all classes, events, and activities to provide students greater flexibility in making decisions that are best for them, without incurring financial penalties. Glass Art Kalamazoo will continue to observe social distancing and clean frequently to help keep everyone safe.
