Course Description

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 at the New Street Glass Studio. After learning the safety and studio etiquette rules, students will watch a brief demonstration of this 2000-year-old art before diving in and making their very own jellyfish paperweight from glass gathered out of a 2100-degree furnace. Instructors will guide students through the steps from gathering to creating a sea creature with simple color patterns, from casing it in clear glass to shaping their own paperweight. No experience is necessary and all materials are included.
