Weekly Glass Blowing Classes

Students work in teams of 2 or 3 for 2 or 3 hours respectively.  Bench time for each student per class period is approximately 1 hour.  Students learn the fundamentals of glass blowing in the first 4 week course.  Team work is emphasized.  Clear glass blowing gives a solid foundation in the formation of the bubble in a sphere and cylinder.  Skills are honed and new skills developed in subsequent 4 week courses if a student decides to move on.
