This course is an thorough introduction to the fundamentals of furnace glassblowing. Learn and practice essential movements such as how to gather glass from the furnace, how to blow a bubble, and how to shape hot glass.

 

By the end of class, students will have made 2 to 4 small pieces and gained an understanding of the fundamental properties of hot glass.

 

This class completes the prerequisite to take all courses in the Beginning Glassblowing Series, including paperweights, cups, cylinders, cones, and more.

 

This class is full, but we will be offering more sessions in the fall. If you’d like to be notified of future Introduction to Glassblowing – Weekend classes (or if you’d like to schedule a private beginning lesson for 1 or more people), call (520)-884-7814.
