Get a taste of the ancient art of glassblowing in this fun one-night course. In one evening, you will learn about the history and process behind creating beautiful blown glass at the New Street Glass Studio. After learning the safety and studio etiquette rules, students will watch a brief demonstration of this 2000-year-old art before diving in and making their very own holiday ornament from glass gathered out of a 2100-degree furnace. Students will choose their own colors and instructors will guide them through the steps from gathering to blowing the bubble and applying a glass loop for hanging. No experience is necessary; all materials are included.
