Get a taste of the ancient art of glassblowing in this fun one night course. In one evening you will learn about the history and process behind creating beautiful blown glass creations at the New Street Glass Studio. After safety and studio etiquette are discussed, students will watch a brief demonstration of this 2,000 year old art before diving in and making their very own paperweight from glass gathered out of a 2,100-degree furnace. Students will choose their own colors and will be guided through the steps from gathering, creating air traps or simple color patterns, to shaping their own paperweight. No experience necessary. Materials: All materials are included.
