About Your Host

Diablo Glass School opened in 2001, creating a public access glass arts studio in Boston, Massachusetts. Diablo is a place where beginning and experienced glass artists are welcome to share a nurturing environment, to grow and develop their creative skills in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Diablo offers different level classes and facilities in various disciplines, exposing a broad spectrum of people to exciting glass techniques in glassblowing, flameworking, fused glass and stained glass. By connecting students to professional national and international glass artists, we provide a learning experience that constantly offers new information and challenges. Diablo currently has partnerships with institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston University, Massachusetts College of Arts and Design, Decordova Museum and Sculptural Park, and Verlocal.

What we'll do

Learn how to Make Marbles with a Torch in this 1 Day Workshop Using either Moretti or Borosilicate glass, students will learn how to make several styles of marbles, such as complex twists, raked designs, and paperweight-style encased flowers. Our experienced instructors will also teach students the techniques for encasing marbles in clear for a magnifying effect, and make glass stands for you to proudly display your creations. Demonstrations will alternate with plenty of working time.
