A hand's on experience where you will be making your own pieces, under the expert supervision of one of the world's leading glassblowers. You'll create a tumbler, and a dish in clear glass, from beginning to end; closely guided by Will.
Experience the heat, intensity, and excitement of working with hot glass and take home mementoes of your day, once they've annealed.
All tools, tea and coffee will be provided.
This ticket allows for a maximum of two people to attend. If you attend on your own then you will get the benefit of one to one time with Will.
Glass blowing is physically demanding. If you struggle to do any physical exercise, can't run up the stairs, bend easily or lift a heavy bag then this is probably not for you. It can be dangerous if you cannot control the blowing irons easily when you are being tutored.
If you have a hearing impediment, please be advised that the workshop has a high level of background noise which can make it very difficult to hear any instructions. Unfortunately, if you wear a hearing aid we would advise you that glass blowing is not a good idea.
Participants must be 18 years of age and over.
If you have any disabilities or physical limitations of any kind we would ask you to discuss it with us before booking. We do reserve the right to not teach you if we feel it would be unsafe to do so.
You will be given a short talk about safety before you start the lesson and you will be expected to follow these instructions at all times.
" Bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. Great morning. Good teaching and explanations. Very friendly and encouraging. Made a bowl and a vase, although did start out as a glass! Would thoroughly recommend."
