BEGINNING GLASS BLOWING LESSONS
Beginning lessons are for now $180 + tax for one student (two hours) and $220 + tax for two students (2 1/2 hours.) Additional time can be booked. Your instructor is able to tailor the experience to the individual. The private lesson starts with hands on practice using colorless glass from the furnace. You'll go through all the hand tools to see how they are used to manipulate and shape the molten glass. After this you are ready to take another dip from the furnace, add some color to clear glass, and make a paperweight.
Next, the techniques used for making the paperweights are used to make a blown vessel. Options include making a small vase, bowl, or dirnking glass.
All the glass made goes into the annealing oven to cool slowly overnight. ramps down to temperature. So any glass you make today come out of the oven tomorrow. When it is out of the oven, a diamond tool is used to sign your name on the bottom.

Participants are asked to wear non-synthetic, long-sleeved clothing and closed-toed shoes.
