Want to experience the thrill of the hottest class in town? Learn to blow glass in small group sessions with René.
He’ll perform group demonstrations as well as spend one on one time with 4 to 8 students, teaching each individual how to gather glass from the crucible and turn it into a finished work of glass art. You’ll learn the time honored secrets of glass blowing and gain new appreciation for the mystique of this ancient art.
In class I you will create a paperweight with hands on instruction.
In class II you will create 2 small pieces, a paper weight and a vessel of your choice; a small vase, bowl or plate.
These pieces you create in class are yours to keep and will be available for pick up the following day - the cooling (or annealing process) takes about 14 hours. More advanced students work on a variety of glass blowing projects.
Both classes offered are available to all experience levels.
