During the four-hour Introduction to Glassblowing 1 class, beginners are broken into supportive small-groups where they learn to manipulate molten glass for the first time. Burgeoning glass blowers who have completed the introductory class or have comparable experience can opt for the Introduction to Glassblowing 2 class, during which they’ll undergo instruction on blowing bubbles and blown shaping and learn how to create a bottle and a glass. In Introduction to Glassblowing 3 classes for even more seasoned glassicists, students concoct an eye-catching icicle. All necessary oxygen, propane, materials, and encouraging back slaps are included.

Revere Glass School
Revere Glass School equips students of all experience levels with up-to-date glassworking gear from Glass Torch Technologies and Delta Elite. Six feet of working space at each workstation provides ample room for glass blowing and fusing or pipe making, while ventilation systems whisk away meddling ghosts. Experienced instructors aim to foster a noncompetitive working and learning environment through up to six levels of classes, guiding each glass-wielding neophyte along on his or her distinct artistic journey.
Courses span principles of practical foundations, creative techniques, and establishing an artistic business. Themed workshops feature international guest artists who lead intensives in methods that they've mastered, such as crafting holiday ornaments that double as single-use baseballs.
