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 and during this workshop, you’ll 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 Glassblowing 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
You’ll use medieval tools and techniques to command the molten glass into the shape of a drinking vessel, all the while spinning the fiery glob on the end of an iron pole.
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.
