What You’ll Do
Creating something with your bare (or not-so-bare) hands can be exhilarating, especially if you’re forging it at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. An expert glass artist helps students do exactly that during his two-hour hands-on workshops, which give participants the power to bend glass to their will.
Learn from Glass-Blowing Experts
The instructors at East Falls Glassblowing boast of a half-century of experience among them. During this class, one of the talented staffers will show you the ins and outs of transforming molten glass into art in the studio’s 800-pound furnace.
Craft a Beautiful Bauble
With guidance from an expert, make your choice of either a paperweight or a glass-ball ornament.
Too Hot to Handle
Because the finished artworks will still clock in at 1,000 degrees at the end of the session, they’ll need time to cool. Participants can return a week after the session to pick them up or pay a flat fee of $15 to have the finished product shipped.
