Description:

GET ALL HOT AND BOTHERED !

Experience the magic of hot glass with a glass making course at our studio in Hay on Wye. The courses are aimed at complete beginners and although we cannot guarantee to turn you into a master glassblower, you will get hands on experience and a great insight into this most fascinating of crafts.
With a class size of only three students you will have plenty of opportunity to get those first few precious pieces into the glass kiln.

But beware - glassblowing is highly addictive!

The full day Beginners Course will take students with no previous experience through the basic rudiments of handling glass to the more complex methods of shaping and blowing glass. Glass making tools used in the glass blowing courses at Eirian Studio Glass in Hay on Wye.

The morning session will teach you how to gather from the furnace, shape, marver and form the glass. It will explore the use of colour in solid objects and show you the basic techniques of paperweight making, allowing you to design and create your own paperweight.

The afternoon session will be focused on widening your skill level by introducing you to handling, shaping and blowing larger amounts of glass. Working as a team with your other classmates you will explore the various techniques and methods of blowing, forming and colouring glass in order to create a vessel by the end of the day.

The course starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm with a one hour break for lunch.

The cost of a full day course is £175.00 per person and includes all necessary materials.

What's included in the price?

Please note that your glass will have to anneal (cool at a controlled rate in a kiln) overnight and will therefore not be available to take home on the day, but we will happily forward your work to you at a cost of £15 paid in advance - this covers the cost of grinding and polishing together with packing and shipping your work.
