Have you ever wondered how glass objects are made? This is your chance to create your own beautiful piece art out of glass. Our instructors will introduce you to the exciting and age-old craft of hot glass forming. Please arrive 10 minutes before class so we can discuss what sort of art you want to make. By the time your class is completed, you will have made your very own piece of glass to take home and enjoy. All materials are included. During the 1 1/2 hr class for two you will each have 30-45 minutes of one-on-one instruction where you will learn about the exciting properties of glass while making a “practice piece". Then, adding colour to the mix, you will move on to the main event—forming your own paperweight, friendship ball, or fanciful flower. Student's works of art need to cool for 1 - 2 days after the class is done. You can either pick up your creation 1-2 days later, or you can have the items mailed to you for the price of shipping to your address. Instruction is available in English, French, and by arrangement, in Japanese. If you get hungry, there's a restaurant on the main floor and two more options a short walk away.
