Glassblowing Private Lessons

Glassblowing lessons will not be available for the month of January 2018 as we are replacing our furnace.

In Glassblowing lessons, students work in the hot shop and gather molten glass from the furnace on the end of a blowpipe. Using traditional techniques, students will create paperweights, vessels and sculpture.

Glassblowing lessons are 4 hours long, and must start at either 9:30 am, 2:00 pm or 6:30 pm. Lessons are not available from 6:30 pm Tuesdays until 6:30 pm Wednesdays as this is when we add glass to our furnace.
