Learn the introductory basics of glassblowing and build a colored glass paperweight!

Do you often admire a beautiful piece of glass and wonder “how did they make that”? This is your chance to get a ground-level understanding of glass’ amazing properties and how glass can be manipulated to create virtually any shape or form. It’s a great opportunity to “test the water” to see if glass blowing is for you.

In this 4-hour class, you will work with molten glass and the basic tools to shape the glass to form a paperweight. You will add color “frit” to jazz up the look and appeal of your piece. You will also learn the annealing process to safely bring your piece to room temperature.

Dress- wear natural fiber clothes and no open-toe shoes.

This class is one session of 4 hours duration. No experience necessary. Your piece will be ready for pickup the day after your class.

Minimum Class Size- 2 students
Maximum Class Size – 4 students

To practice what you learn, you can rent the glass studio on an hourly basis. And you can schedule private instruction with one of Liberty Arts’ instructors. See website for details
