Sunday at the Glass Studio
Jan 20, 2013
We offer a free glass art demo every day at noon.
On the calendar today for classes or special events:
• Introductory Glassblowing: Champagne Paperweight
This is our most popular introductory class. In these two-hour sessions you'll use a blowpipe to convert hot glass into a colorful champagne paperweight. In the process, you’ll get familiar with the Studio equipment and working with molten glass. Today's session begins at 2 p.m. and you can sign up or get more details here. You can repeat these classes for more practice or advance to more in-depth instruction.
• Two-Hour Class: An Introduction to Glass Fusing
Create your own custom glass tiles or coasters! From design to cutting, layout to firing in the kiln, our Studio staff will give you an overview of the fusing process. From 2-4 p.m. on selected Sundays, so you can come back again in you wish. You can sign up online here. ($40 Members, $60 all others).
• Two-Day Workshop: Flameworking (Torches, Tools and Hot Rods)
Today, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is the second day of a workshop dedicated to showing you how to use borosilicate glass to build beads, marbles, and other projects. Different tools and types of glass allow for a variety of forms, designs, and textures, so try them all this weekend. To sign up, click here. ($150 Members, $200 all others).
