3-Day Glassblowing
for beginners and follow-on from 1-day
Wed 6 - Fri 8 January 2016
Fusing Glass Christmas Ornaments

Immerse yourself in glassblowing for 3 days!

This three day course offers beginners the opportunity to discover the potential of this unique material, with enough time to fully immerse themselves in hot glass techniques. Students will learn how to gather hot glass from the furnace, then blow, shape and add colour; master basic forms such as paperweights, spheres and vases, and then progress onto further forms such as bowls and plates. We will also look at sculptural techniques for creating more complex forms. This is an excellent fun and stimulating course for those looking for a more solid foundation and better understanding of glassblowing techniques.
