Focus will be on creating an open vessel ( vase, glass, bowls, etc..) There will be demos and lots of hands-on experience. Our instructors will help you experience the magic of hot glass! This hands-on session allows you to pick and apply colors, twist and turn them if you want, then blow or shape them into a unique and beautiful piece of art glass.
