Half-day taster sessions, lasting approximately 3 hours, provide the perfect introduction to the fascinating world of glassblowing. Safety is of paramount importance and a brief talk will ensure you feel confident throughout the session. Working with borosilicate glass (you might recognise the name Pirex), you will delve into the mesmerizing art of lampwork, unlocking your inner artist and learning the techniques to create several items. As your guide, I will demonstrate various techniques, sharing my expertise and tips along the way. We'll start with basic solid/sculptural techniques to make a small hanging ornament, with these skills in hand we'll move on to making a pendant before finishing the session by blowing a bauble. Not only will you witness the magic of glass manipulation, but you will also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the process. With a vast array of vibrant colored glass at your fingertips, you can handpick the hues that resonate with your creative vision.

Pricing is per person, enabling everyone to embrace their individual artistic journey without breaking the bank.
