Starter Class

Starter Class

Regular price $65

Learn all about furnace glassblowing and working in a Hot Shop. First timers make a solid paperweight, repeat students can move on to a hollow vessel form or stay with solid. We incorporate chemistry, physics, and some history into the class, for all types of interests!

Furnace glassblowing is very dangerous and difficult. We offer a safe and engaging experience, and each student makes one solid paperweight.

Ages 10+

Full Participation. Allow approximately 2-2.5 hours for class.

Cotton Clothing and Closed Shoes are required for hot shop activities. You may get dirty. A liability waiver is required. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Waivers and clothing information will be emailed the week of class.

Please arrive 5 minutes early to fill out the waiver, or come with it completed. WE START ON TIME!
