If you've ever wanted to learn to blow glass this is the class for you. In Level One glassblowing students will learn the fundamentals of glassblowing. An experienced glassblowing instructor will teach the basics of working with hot glass through the use of demonstrations and studio participation. No previous glass or art experience is needed to enroll in this class.
Students will gain the basic skills needed to blow glass unassisted without an instructor by the end of the 8-week class.
Students are required to wear all natural fibers (cotton, linen, silk, etc.) and closed toe shoes, bring a drinking container for water, and a sketchbook for notes. Students are also required to wear eye protection (sunglasses or safety glasses) during the classes. If you don’t have sunglasses, a pair of safety glasses will be provided for you.
Cost of class: $575
