What you'll do
You will learn the basics of lampworking AKA glassblowing. The main difference is glassblowing is done with a very large oven called a glory hole, while lampworking uses a torch. This is a 4-hour class and about 1 hour is spent training you on safety and techniques. This is split up throughout the experience. You will spend about a full 3 hours on the torch playing with molten glass. In the class, we can go over basic items like a flower implosion or a mushroom marble, pendants, glass ice cubes and other more simple to make items. Glassblowing is freaking fun and amazing, but it is not easy at the start. Be warned, you may experience too much fun, melting glass in fire is just plain cool! Another project we have been working on to incorporate is trying to make a pipe with you. It takes a good amount of time to make one from scratch so we have pre-made pipes slugs you can pick from so we can add a marble you made to it in a timely fashion. The pre-made slugs do cost a little extra, but you get a really cool extra special piece. With this added option the teacher will be the one making the pipe.
I am a self-taught glass artist that started nearly 15 years ago. We have a 14 station studio and 3 lathes. This is a working studio so there could be glassblowers working near you also. We make all the glass for the Silver Surfer Vaporizer and Elev8 Premier Glass that we sell worldwide. You will either be working with Sean H., Jeff E. or me, Steve:).
