Glass blowing class

107 Redfern St
Redfern NSW 2016

Sunday 7 August from 10am to 5pm

Learn glass blowing and sculpting glass via flame with expert glass Artist Mark Eliott. This is a truly hands-on glass blowing workshop that is perfect for beginners, as well as those with some experience.

Working with seasonal colours of glass, this workshop will cover:

  • The basics of glass blowing using an "oxygen-propane" torch

  • Using a variety of glass materials both clear and coloured "borosilicate" glass (you'll learn various types at the workshop!)

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

  • Safety talk on using a blow torch

You'll use both the right and left parts of the brain when you plan how to make your glass creation, using creativity and improvising on the spot. You will make a variety of glass objects that you can take home for your family and friends to admire. Small glass animals, small abstract creations, vessel forms, wearable objects and whatever else your mind can conjure.

During the day there will be a 40-minute break for lunch where you can either BYO lunch or there are a variety of lovely cafes outside of the studio. There will also be two 10-minute flexible breaks during the day where tea is provided. It's important to take a break when working with heat!
