Asheville Glass Center - Asheville: Flameworking or Glassblowing Class at Asheville Glass Center. Two Options Available.

Though glass is an excellent design medium, building a house out of it significantly reduces the homeowner’s ability to throw parties for visiting elephants. Learn how to handle this fragile substance with today’s Groupon to Asheville Glass Center. Choose between two options:

The artful flame-tamers at the Asheville Glass Center guide glass-making greenhorns through the igneous world of glassworking with hands-on classes and workshops. Helmed by expert instructors, the Intro to Flameworking class condenses the basics of flameworking into a two-hour workshop, capped at six people to ensure that pupils receive individualized instruction and optimum opportunities for six-part harmonizing. Inferno-harnessing initiates can choose to focus on borosilicate flameworking and create room-temperature icicles and clear marbles, and those opting to learn about soft-glass bead-making can craft glossy necklace-and-abacus enhancers.

Small groups of no more than six discover the essentials of glassblowing, including tool usage, proper technique, and how to breathe life into glass busts of Frankenstein, during the three-hour Introduction to the Hot Shop class. Students can forge several translucent artworks, including cups and paperweights, that can be taken home and used to quash paper uprisings or contain orange-juice rebellions. The tools and supplies for both classes are provided by the Asheville Glass Center, allowing participants to leave their personal blowpipes and portable furnaces at home. Check out the class calendar for dates and times.

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.
