The Glass Blowing Experience

Beginner student working with hot glass.

Classes are taught on Fridays and Saturdays

 

 

WE TEACH GLASS BLOWING LESSONS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ALL LESSONS ARE SCHEDULED INDIVIDUALLY. LET US KNOW WHEN YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME AND WORK AND WE WILL SET UP A TIME ACCORDING TO OUR STUDIO SCHEDULE. SATURDAYS TEND TO FILL UP QUICKLY. ALL WORK IS AVAILABLE TO TAKE HOME THE FOLLOWING DAY. PRICE IS FOR THE TOTAL TIME NOT PER PERSON, MEANING THAT A 2 HOUR CLASS FOR 2 PEOPLE IS $110 A PERSON AND THEY EACH MAKE 2 PIECES, WHILE A 2 HOUR CLASS FOR 1 PERSON IS $220 AND THAT PERSON MAKES 3-4 PIECES, DEPENDING ON COMPLEXITY.
LEARN THE TECHNIQUES OF BLOWING GLASS OFF-HAND WITH AN EXPERIENCED GLASS INSTRUCTOR. A BASIC SET OF TOOLS AND MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED ALONG WITH A LIMITED PALLET OF COLOR OPTIONS. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY, HOWEVER STUDENTS WITH PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE MAY REQUEST A CERTAIN AGENDA FOR A SESSION. RESERVED TIMES CAN BE SPLIT WITH MULTIPLE PARTICIPANTS AS SUGGESTED IN DESCRIPTION.

2 Hour • Basic Training - $  240 (total for 1 or 2 students)

4 Hour • Intensive - $  480  (total for 1 - 4 sturdents)

This session allows for a deeper investigation into form and color options.  First half will allow student to become comfortable with the material by making several objects.  At this point we will look at some options for creating more elaborate forms and utilize some techniques.
