Make Your Own Vessel

In this 40 minute one-on-one session with the expert guidance of a teaching artist, learn some of the basic glassblowing techniques to make a tumbler or vase. Seated at a bench on the hotshop floor, you will use glassblowing tools including jacks, blocks, paddles and punties to make cane and shape the molten glass into a vessel, before placing the finished work in an annealer (a kiln that cools the piece at a controlled rate to avoid stressing and cracking the glass).

This is an individual workshop. Our Hotshop mezzanine is the perfect place to watch and support our Make Your Own participants while they are on the Hotshop floor.

You must be minimum 14 years old to participate in this program

You must wear fully closed shoes, natural fabric clothing, preferably non-synthetics, long hair pulled back. You must wear your prescription glasses over contact lenses.
