This one day glassblowing lesson aims to provide an intensive introduction to this most exciting and challenging of craft disciplines.
Throughout the lesson, you will learn to gather molten glass from the furnace at a temperature exceeding 1100 degrees and manipulate it with a range of traditional glassmaking tools. You will be taught to apply colour and pattern to the clear glass so that by the end of the lesson, you will have produced a number of items from vessels to paper weights of your own design to take home and treasure.
LOCATION: Clavering Farm, Clavering, Essex, CB11 4RL. The nearest train station is Newport, and around one hour drive from London.
DURATION: Six hours.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This glassblowing lesson is aimed at complete beginners, so no previous experience is necessary. Each class is small - there is a maximum of two students per instructor, so you will get plenty of one on one instruction. All safety equipment and materials are provided. Please wear sensible, comfortable shoes, preferably layers, so you can remove the outer layer if you get hot; and flat, sturdy shoes. Long hair should be tied back. Complimentary hot and cold drinks will be provided but feel free to bring along drinks, snacks and a packed lunch. Lunch is available at the Lodge nearby. Students for glassblowing courses must be over 18 years of age. Please note that glass vessels and other pieces made during the lesson need to cool slowly in the kiln, so these can be picked up two days later, or alternatively these can be posted for a charge.
