Description

Thanks for the interest in working with Molten Glass at GRT Hot Glass Studios!!!

Introducing our "Hands on" BLOW AN ORNAMENT CLASS!!!

Taught by Matt Kenyon

What to Expect:

This is a 2 to 2.5 hour class where you can create a colored glass Ornament for a wonderful experience that the you will never forget. This hands on Sampler class is the hurried version of getting you to understand the properties of working with molten glass. Students will get glass out of the furnace, add color, do a design and blow out the bubble while our skilled instructor shapes and forms the glass into a sphere with your breath. There will be two demos then students go two at a time until we are finished. You are welcome to leave after you create your piece, but it is a lot of fun to watch others go though the same process. Each student will be getting glass out of a furnace that is over 2000 degrees with our assistance and introducing color to it. After the last layer of glass the students will form a sphere or something close to it. Students will get enough practice to figure out the properties of the medium, but it takes a private lesson where we go though with enough practice to feel comfortable. (See below for that option)

The glass studio is an intimidating setting for beginners and the instructor will do his best to help get you to feel as comfortable as possible by explaining the properties of the glass and how to stay safe handling molten glass. There is a lot of information so please come on time. The Glass studio is hot and it is more serious than most people expect. If you touch the wrong part of the pipe you could burn yourself.

What to bring and where to pick up:

You will not need any supplies and you are welcome to bring your own beverages, water and/or sunglasses. Please wear comfortable cotton clothes and no open toed shoes or things that like to melt. Your pieces will not be available to take at the end of the class because they need to be annealed, or cooled properly. They will be available at the front desk at GRT Hot Glass Studios between 8:15 and 4:15 Monday though Friday, if you cannot make those times available contact Matt Kenyon to coorditate a time works into your schedule. Please be nice, patient and respectful when picking up your work.

If you have questions or you would like to sign up just contact Matt Kenyon at kenyonscreations@gmail.com

DO A LESSON INSTEAD OF A SAMPLER !!! You will not be disappointed!!!


PRIVATE LESSONS: We suggest setting up a Private Lesson instead this Sampler Class for your first experience. It is not as intimidating and it will be easier for you to focus when the studio is not full of people. You will create 5 to 7 things, but is more about the positive experience you get Private Lessons are 60 an hour for one person or 50 per person per hour and we do 2 hour lessons.

CREATE A SAMPLER CLASS: (bring your own group in for $45 each)
You can contact Matt Kenyon to create your own Sampler any time or day of the week. Ornaments, Paperweights, or Pumpkins are 50 per person for 6 or less, 45 per person for 7 to 20 people. The Flower class is 35 per person and we can accomidate up to 20
