There is only one opening remaining at this time.
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 small vase from glass gathered out of a 2100-degree furnace. Instructors will guide students through the steps from gathering to applying color, from blowing the bubble and forming it into a small vase. No experience is necessary; all materials are included.
Student Fee: $85
