Witness and learn the skilful creation process of a clear glass acorn, blown and sculpted from molten glass. Then select your favourite one to take home with you. You are invited to visit the glassblowing studio on a day when professional glassmaker Jason Stropko creates one of his signature glass objects: the clear glass acorn, most are made from solid glass but sometimes he creates extra large ones, which are blown to size. You can observe the making of an acorn and learn some basics about the glassmaking process. After which it is time for you to create your own! Suitable for beginners and continuing participants alike. Learn to Create Your Own Blown Glass Acorn in the Glassblowing Studio with Glassmaker Jason Stropko Learn the basics of glassblowing techniques to create your very own glass acorn. Your glassblowing instructor Jason will guide you through the process of how to create your very own glass acorn. Each participant will create their own acorn to take home with them (after it has cooled overnight). The price of this class includes the following: • glass studio rental • your highly skilled glassblowing instructor • the glass you need to create your acorn • an acorn made by Jason to take home as well as the one that you created yourself • 3-4 hour class depending on number of class participants. (if the offered date isn't a good fit for you but you would like to come with some friends to learn to make an acorn then you can write to us and we will try to fit you into the schedule with a class created just for you!) Acorns are symbols of hope and new beginnings. They are wonderful gifts for family and friends who stand at the beginning of a new journey in life. "For every mighty oak a little acorn once stood it's ground.." What better object to make from glass in Oakland than a seed of an oak? Prerequisite This class is a great follow up class to one of Jason's other glassblowing classes HOWEVER: first-timers are warmly welcome and Jason will guide you to create your own acorn, too! --------------------------------- Important notice: Cancellation Policy While we try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible : Cancellations or date change requests are best made at least a week prior to your booking. This is because it is often not possible to fill a class cancelled on shorter notice than that and Jason enters a rental agreement with the glassblowing studio when he accepts your booking. As such, guests must cancel 7 days prior to the date of the experience, whether to cancel attendance completely or to move dates. By purchasing, you will be agreeing to this policy. Thank you!
