If you’ve never tried glassblowing before, it can be intimidating at first. After all, you’ll be dealing with large furnaces with temperatures that reach over 2000 degrees. We’ve designed this class with the beginner in mind so that anyone can experience the art for themselves, no matter their skill level. A paperweight is a perfect project for first-timers to try out glassblowing.
Under the guidance of an instructor, students will experience how glass is manipulated and formed into a simple shape. Creating a glass paperweight teaches the fundamentals of gathering, coloring, shaping and transferring the piece off of the blowpipe.
