Description

Glass Blowing For Beginners

Breathe some life into a home for your own air plant by learning the fundamentals of glass blowing. Students select from different color options and design either a hanging, wall hung or small tripod planter (about a 3" diameter) with the help of Glass Shop instructor, Jason Dederich.

Glass blowing is an art and the craft takes time to master. This session enables participants to join with a small group to get a sense of the process. Learn more about blowing fine glass by working with Jason to form your own usable object*.

What you'll learn:
Heating glass
Pipe turning
Proper glass blowing stances.
Pipe/Body/Hand positioning
Pulling and shaping hot glass

Other skills covered:

Point Turning
Marvering
Resetting point on center
Basic glass balancing
