About the Course
During this hands-on glass blowing course you will learn all the basic skills of glassmaking in order to make your own paperweight with a professional glassblower and learn the magical way glass is blown and sculpted.
Our course is great if you are a complete beginner as no previous experience is necessary, we will start you off from scratch and by the end of the session you will have learnt all the basic techniques in order to make your very own paperweight.
During the course you will be introduced to techniques such as:
- Gathering Glass From The Furnace
- Shaping And Tooling The Molten Glass
- Applying Colour
- Finishing The Base
We offer tuition on the glass blowing course for a maximum of 4 people at a time, so book early to avoid disappointment, via the form above. Courses run most Saturdays throughout the year.
You will be able to take home your own piece of art after it has cooled down overnight or it can be posted to you the following week.
