In the flame-working class, students learn to make soft glass beads or marbles and icicles of hard borosilicate. The hot-shop class covers the basic tools and techniques of glass blowing, and students can create several art pieces that they pick up the next day.

Asheville Glass Center

Combining experience in lampworking, glass blowing, and jewelry design, the experienced glassblowers of Asheville Glass Center lead workshops and classes to share their passion for manipulating molten glass. The two- to three-hour intro courses teach neophytes to craft borosilicate marbles and soft glass beads, and more in-depth classes result in intricate implosion flowers and sand-cast solid forms. The center also offers open studio time for more experienced artists who wish to work alone, like the winningest three-legged racers.
