When

1st and 2nd Weekend of each month, 10am to 5pm Saturday 6 July to Sunday 8 September

Discover a fabulous new skill: blowing and sculpting glass in the flame! This beginner's class is taught by Glass Artist Mark Eliott. Mark will take you through the basics of glass blowing and sculpting in this two and a half-hour introduction in his Marrickville studio.

This workshop will cover:

  • Using both clear and coloured "borosilicate" glass rods and tubes (you'll learn various types at the workshop!)

  • Techniques such as sculpting, joining, stretching, blowing, and colour mixing

  • Safety talk on using the glass blowing torch

  • Half an hour of kiln time for your pieces to anneal.

You are using both right and left parts of the brain in this creative process which combines planning with improvisation. Students will come on a creative adventure with glass flame-work which balances technique, structure and improvisation.
