Introduction to Glassblowing Workshop

ID : 46246   
« back to classes page
CourseGraphic The hot shop, or glassblowing studio, is where molten glass is blown, cast or manipulated. Hot glass is extremely difficult to manipulate and control and behaves unlike any other material. Artists cannot touch the glass directly so they must use special tools, like blowpipes and punties (long metal rods) to safely gather, blow and wield molten glass. 
This class is an introductory lesson which offers participants a hands-on opportunity to try the glassblowing experience before committing to a longer format class. Teaching artists will instruct participants in traditional postures and basic techniques for controlling and shaping molten glass.
