Ornament Making


A blown ornament or is a great way to begin one's journey with blowing glass. This is a great class to take before attempting a cup or a bowl. It establishes an understanding of gathering and blowing a small bubble as well as an introduction to tool work. As with anything in life, when one good thing leads to another the results get better and better. Keep that in mind when choosing a class!

Class Description: First, there will be a demonstration on how to make an ornament so we are all on the same page! Secondly, you will choose up to 2 colors and will be assisted in developing a pattern. Then you will be expertly guided through all the steps. This is a very hands on process! I am well-versed in teaching of people of all ages and abilities so I can make adjustments on the fly to make experience more suitable for you! Let the fun begin!

Blowing glass is a fascinating medium. It's a material that you can never truly touch with your hands. It takes specialized tools that are centuries old in design. Nothing feels more amazing than grabbing molten glass with a large pair of tweezers and stretching it out. It is truly a bizarre and fascinating world to experience!
