Description

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

Introducing our "Hands on" HEART CLASS!!!

Taught by Matt Kenyon

What to Expect:

This is a 2 to 2.5 hour class where you can create a colored glass paperweight that looks like a heart 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. There will be two demos then students go two at a time until we are finished. You are welcome to take off 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. You will get enough practice to figure out the properties of the medium, but it takes a private lesson to get enough practice to feel comfortable.

The glass studio is an intimidating setting for beginners and Matt will attempt help get you to feel as comfortable as possible by explaining the properties of the glass and how to work with molten glass. There is a lot of information so please try to come on time. Matt Kenyon will help the patrons understand the properties of the medium the best he knows how and after the class everyone will have a new respect and understanding of this wondrous medium. A few days after your piece is annealed, or cooled properly, it will be at the front desk at GRT ready for you to pick up during regular business hours.

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 your self. Everyone need to pay attention to the demo. 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. 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
