On this glass blowing course you will learn all the basic skills of glassmaking in order to make your own paperweight with a professional glassblower and learn the magical way glass is blown and sculpted.
Our course is great if you are a complete beginner as no previous experience is necessary as we will start you off from scratch and by the end of the session you will have learnt all the basic techniques in order to make your very own paperweight.
During the course you will be introduced to techniques such as:
- Gathering Glass From The Furnace
- Shaping And Tooling The Molten Glass
- Applying Colour
- Finishing The Base
- Experience Blowing Glass Using A Blowing Iron
We offer tuition at the glass blowing course for a maximum of 4 people at a time, so book early. You will be able to take home your own piece of art after it has cooled down overnight which we can sign and date for you. (please note we are closed on Sundays so your work can be collected from the Sudio from the Monday onwards or we can post your paperweight to you but we do charge for postage and packing)
Glass blowing Courses take place on Saturday mornings at the Theatre of Glass, Walcot Street in the centre of Bath and run for 3 hours from 9.30 – 12.30.
£75 per person – If you book a group of four people it is £65 each.
