GLASSBLOWING ART—”BLOW YOUR OWN BALL”

This Make Your Own Glass Art event will put your guests in the artist’s seat. Each participant will design, color, and create a one of a kind art piece in the studio alongside an experienced instructor.

The Hot Shop allows the guests to learn about Italian-style furnace glassblowing. Guests will choose the color and style of their piece; Each individual will then assist an instructor by blowing air into the blow pipe which shapes the glass. This beginning glassblowing activity is perfect for those who have always been curious about the tools and techniques of furnace glassblowing. Each may take a more active or passive a role based on his/her comfort level. Everyone will design and make (1) tumbler.

The Warm Shop offers participants a unique glass art experience into the world of glass fusing. Here the group will learn to cut scrap glass and then, on a clear base, create a 2-D design that will fuse in a kiln and then slump into a mold of his/her choice. The finished piece will be a plate ranging in size from 6”x 6 “to 6”x 12”

This activity is sure to offer something for everyone. Choose between the Hot or warm shop or if time allows, do both!
