MAEA:  Blown Glass Ornaments Using Glaskolben

Tuesday, August 6th, from 9a - 11a

Ages: 18+ years old

Try your hand at making blown-glass ornaments. Using an oxygen-propane torch, students will learn basic techniques for using pre-blown glaskolben to make blown-glass ornaments. Frit will be used to add color to the clear glaskolben. Learning to control heat, gravity, and blowing techniques will determine your success. Creating these colorful ornaments will give students a basis for further working glass in the torch. Each student will be provided 6 glaskolben. When you pick up your ornaments, be sure to bring packing material and a small container to transport your ornaments to the safety of your home. Basic torch safety will be discussed.

This class is intended to expand your repertory of techniques in glass bead-making. If you are interested in exploring a technique, please inform the instructor. All materials included.
