Glassblowing 101: Make your own Drinking Glass ( 2 session workshops)
Learn to Blow your own Drinking Glass in this Two Day Workshop This two-day introduction to glassblowing will guide the first time student and students looking to brush-up on their skills, through the fundamentals of gathering glass from the furnace, vocabulary, tools, and safety. You will start with Diablo's core exercises: the paperweight. Then the class will be introduced to the blown bubble through a series of demonstrations and hands-on exercises. Students will then apply the color and blowing techniques learned to create their very own colorful drinking glass. There's no experience necessary to enjoy this workshop.
