Our glass blowing taster class will give you an opportunity to try your hand at blowing a small clear glass vessel and dish, and experience the unique problems that working with molten glass pose. It will include basic glassmaking techniques such as marvering and blowing.
Will has been teaching glass blowing for many years. You may have seen him on Inside The factory, Kirstie's Homemade Home and Kirstie's Homemade Christmas teaching Kirstie Allsopp, or in the national newspapers.
Classes are usually held on Saturday mornings with a maximum size of 4.
You can keep everything that you make, although you will not be able to take it home with you on the day because it has to anneal overnight.
IMPORTANT CONDITIONS If you have any health issues or hearing impediment of any kind it would be advisable to contact us. We do reserve the right to not teach you if we feel it is unsafe to do so. Students must be 18 years old or over.
