What You’ll Do
To create glass art, you need three things: fire, lungs, and an almost magic disregard for the way solid objects are expected to behave. During this class, even first-time glass manipulators will get the chance to bravely exhale, blowing a dollop of molten sand and shaping it into a seasonal paperweight. Over the course of three hours, you’ll get one-on-one instruction and learn to melt, blow, and mold this dynamic medium.
Terms and First Aid
Corey and another instructor will start with lessons on terminology and safety, introducing you to the studio’s gear while helping you avoid injury.
Watch and Learn
Next, the teachers will make a paperweight in front of the glass, demonstrating the steps you’ll take when you make your own.
Every student gets a full 30 minutes of independent instruction with Corey or another instructor.
The Finished Product
After 48 hours, your paperweight is cool and ready for pickup.
Glass Artist, C&H Glassworks
Corey Silverman and Horace Marlowe founded their eponymous studio, C&H Glassworks, to build a community of likeminded creatives. They’ve collaborated with each other and major designers on major installations, such as a glass-and-metal Christmas tree for a Nieman Marcus flagship store and a modern piece for Denver steak house Guard and Grace. But they still get excited about teaching, which is why the duo offers an array of workshops for students eager to learn their hypnotizing art.
