Group Workshop - Beginners Glass Blowing Workshop - Part One

Regular price

Due to popular demand NZG is now offering this workshop to groups - simply organise 4 people to attend a workshop and we can schedule one on request.

Are you fascinated by the 2000 year old art of glass blowing? This one day workshop is intended for beginners who have little or no experience with molten glass. Emphasis will be placed on the skills necessary to complete simple paperweights and blown vessels. You will be encouraged to work in teams as well as receiving one-on-one instruction. Each participant can expect to make; a tear drop, two paperweights and a blown vessel.

Workshops can be held on the second and fourth Saturday of each month from 9am to 4pm with only four places in each workshop; making it very hands on and of course, fun!
