Beginners Glass Blowing Workshop : Level 1 | 2023
During this workshop, you will learn about the different types of glass, tools, and equipment used in glass blowing. You will also learn how to safely work with glass, including handling hot glass, shaping, and manipulating it to create your own unique pieces.
Under the guidance of our instructors, you will have the opportunity to create a variety of simple blown glass objects, such as paperweights, ornaments, and small vessels. You will also learn techniques such as gathering, marvering, and blowing to shape your creations.
At the end of the workshop, you will take home your own beautiful blown glass pieces, which you can proudly display or use as gifts for friends and family.
No prior experience is required for this workshop. All materials and equipment will be provided, including safety gear, so all you need to bring is your creativity and a willingness to learn.
