Hot Glass Crash Course
The ARTPOP hotshop has borrowed the format and an instructor from the Minnesota Center for Glass Arts (MCGA) to provide you with a weekend opportunity to immerse yourself in the basics of glass blowing. Students will work hands-on making solid and blown glass forms, creating color glass flowers, paperweights, and pint glasses to take home. In this beginner level course, you will learn about the tools and process of glass blowing. The class is spread over 8 hours on 2 days and limited to 3 people per class.
Dress Requirements: You must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not recommended around equipment or processes that produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames. Layers are encouraged as the studio can be very cold or very hot. Additional protective gear will be provided as needed.
