The perfect class for your first experience working in a glass blowing studio. Participants are given the opportunity to work with our instructors to learn about the equipment, tools and materials used to transform raw glass into a memorable experience. When you are working in the hot shop (glass blowing studio), you are working with the glass in its molten state (2100°F). The process begins by taking a pipe and gathering the molten glass from the furnace and then forming and shaping it with tools and by blowing air into it.
In this 2-hour glass workshop, each participant will demonstrate the basic techniques of glass blowing to make at least two individual items. You will work with our instructors select and add color to molten glass to create a one of a kind mini paperweight and a seasonal item. Items created will be ready for pick up in the SiNaCa Studios gallery five business days after made.
The mission of SiNaCa Studios, a national center for Art Glass Education, is to provide an opportunity to experience the rich tradition of glass as a creative medium through education and studio involvement.
