What You’ll Do
There are fewer greater satisfactions than knowing that you’ve earned the cold beer you’re drinking by making the glass it’s in. During this workshop, glass artists help you work up a sweat worthy of a beer or two. And working up a sweat isn’t just a turn of phrase, either—you’ll forge your work in a furnace roaring at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Learn from Glass-Blowing Experts
The instructors at East Falls Glassworks boast a half-century of experience among them. During this class, one will show you the ins and outs of working with the studio’s 800-pound furnace.
Craft Custom Glassware
An experienced teacher helps you draw the molten glass from the furnace on a long metal rod, adding color and detail along the way to create a piece of art that is all your own.
Too Hot to Handle
Because the finished artworks will still be 1,000 degrees at the session’s end, they’ll need time to cool off. Participants can return a week after the session to pick theirs up or pay a flat fee of $15 to have it shipped.
