See next season's schedule below, or call us today at (610) 469-9066.

Joel helps a student maintain even pressure while 'blocking' red-hot glass.  

     A professional glassblower begins each class with a brief lecture on safety, mechanics, and materials. Following a demonstration of hot-glass techniques students will be using during the day, students start making their own glass pieces.

"The class was great! Good teachers, fun classmates, very relaxed atmosphere... . I haven't felt so 'right' about doing something in years, even if I felt clumsy to start." -- E.B.

 
  Joel steadies a student's hands as she adds color to white-hot glass.
 

     Students work one-on-one with instructors learning how to gather, marver, blow, shape, color, and finish a punteed piece. Giving each student several chances to work with hot glass, the class allows the students to experience the basics and begin to play with form and color for an unforgettable experience.

"It was amazing! I am so glad that I got the opportunity to work with such a remarkable art form. The instructors were extremely knowledgeable and patient." -- C.D.
