Activity:

This workshop focuses on making hot glass and is a “hands on experience” suitable for small groups that want to see what it is like to work with hot glass.  Blowing glass without a furnace is possible when you pick up pieces of glass, seal and blow.  This is a new way of working with hot glass that has become popular with contemporary studio glass artists in recent years.  

Participants will be able to experience what it is like to work with hot glass.  They can feel the heat, learn the importance of turning the pipe with hot glass on the end and understand the skills required to make sculpt the glass.  Each participant will have the chance to create a small vase or tumbler.  

Working at temperatures of more than 1,000 degrees Celsius, you will be getting hot in the ‘hot shop’.  The hot glass making sessions starts with basic instruction about how to move around the studio, then we pick up sheet glass, apply colour and shape the glass to create a shape.
