The Essentials

  • Learn from a master gaffer. Lada, a master glassblower at Simon Pearce for over 10 years, will open his studio to you so that you can experience what it’s like to work with molten glass. He will be there to teach you different techniques and help you create your own work of glass art.
  • Create your own glass art! Each student will get to work hands on with hot glass. You will create your own colorful paperweight or glass ornament that you will be able to take home. Please note that glass needs to cool in a kiln overnight before it is safe to handle, so you will need to pick up your finished piece sometime after the class.

Details

  • Please dress for glassblowing success! You will need to wear close-toed shoes, long pants, and a long sleeve shirt to protect from the heat of the glass studio equipment.
  • Working with molten glass creates a very warm environment. Please bring a water bottle or beverage so that you can stay comfortable and hydrated.
