Blown Glass Ornaments

 

1 Session, 3 Hours. Cost: $130.00. Prerequisite: None.  A fun and easy class where you will learn how to make fabulous blown glass ornaments. Each student will be given 10 glass tubes to fill with their favorite color or colors of glass and heat them with a torch. You will then blow the warm glass (actually its really hot) into a one-of-a-kind ornament.  Min. 4 Max. 8 students per class.  This class is only offered on Saturdays in November and December.  Please note that due to the limited availability of the class the class price is non-refundable unless we can fill your spot off of a waiting list.  Students with long hair should bring something to tie it back.  Please wear clothing that is made of cotton or wool, nothing flowing or made of nylon or polyester as these are highly flammable.

 

Participants must bring one canister of (1) MAPP gas to class which may be purchased at most hardware stores. You will find them in the plumbing section.  You do not need to purchase a torch head - we use a specialized torch head for this class. 

Cost for the tank is around $10.00.
