Indulge your inner artist with a two-hour glass blowing session! Hot Glass Academy glassblowing studio will set up a furnace on WMA’s campus. Each workshop session begins with a comprehensive safety introduction to working with hot glass. Students then begin their one-on-one session with the instructor by picking out one or two glass colors for their object, followed by a brief, fun warm-up with glass and tools for each student to become familiar with the material properties of molten glass. Next, students will gather glass on a steel blowpipe or rod, apply their chosen color(s), and shape the glass into the selected form. Each piece will be placed in the annealing oven for a slow cooling process*. Every object is handmade and no two are exactly the same. Students will have the option to create a cup, ornament, paperweight, or flower.
This is an EXCLUSIVE workshop. Hot Glass Academy no longer hosts workshops outside of their studio in Georgia, so make sure you reserve your spot TODAY!
