Glassblowing 101 : Drinking Glasses

What to expect
  • Learn the fundamentals of glassblowing, including vocabulary, tools, and safety
  • Apply color and blowing techniques to create your own, colorful drinking glass
  • Practice gathering glass from a furnace
  • No experience necessary
Like in ancient Greece, you sculpted glass into your cups. Wine was sipped from a utensil that took days to produce. This two-day introduction to glassblowing will guide first timers, and others looking to brush-up on their skills, through the fundamentals of gathering glass from the furnace, vocabulary, tools, and safety. You will start with one of Diablo's core exercises: the paperweight. Then the class will be introduced to the blown bubble through a series of demonstrations and hands-on exercises. You will then apply the color and blowing techniques learned to create your very own colorful drinking glass.

Note: All materials included. Sign up for the first session through Vimbly, and the second session meets the following day at the same time.

All glass projects have to be cooled or "annealed" in a kiln after creation, for this reason all projects will be available for pick up within 1 week of the class. (Next day for Flameworking classes only) please call ahead to schedule pick up
