All classes are approximately two hours long. During a hotshop session, students can craft a floppy bowl, or use more advanced techniques to create up to two ornaments or a pair of drinking glasses. Fusing courses teach participants to make a medium-size nest bowl, a mobile, or a glass portrait. Flameshop projects include a bangle bracelet and choker set; a set of stir sticks and a pair of wineglass charms; or a wine stopper and a pair of wineglass charms.
At Neusole Glassworks, gurus of all stripes and skill levels come together to fuse, blow, and mold glass both for independent projects and classes that explore the art form. The nonprofit facility sets the stage for inspired creation with flame-working, hotshop, and fusing studios that help the crew and their pupils transform raw materials into polished paperweights, unique pendants, and colorful new windshields. Upstairs, Neusole Glassworks invites browsers to tote pieces home from the gift shop or let their eyes feast on the myriad colors and textures at Atmosphere @ Neusole—a gallery for emerging artists and the facility’s students. In addition to welcoming anyone into its facility, Neusole Glassworks dispatches a mobile glassblowing studio to enliven street fairs and churn out slippers for palace dance parties.
