Service Description

Accelerate your glassblowing skills with this condensed, two day version of level 4! The content is the same, but because you will meet on two weekend days for six hours per class it will help accelerate the learning process. This course will further your understanding of how to properly execute a final piece. Students will work towards independence, gaining confidence in operating the studio facilities and gaining skills in glassblowing-specific problem solving. This is the last level in order to become a renter in the hotshop! You will explore how to make a platter, add handles and work with solid color. There will be a 30 min break incorporated into the class so the total length of the class is 6 hours 30 min. This is the last step in order to become a renter in the hotshop! Memberships available after taking the class. Level 5 or ISW will be the next step for more instruction. Level 5 will have more intimate instruction and a slower pace with a concentration on the basics and optic molds. ISW has rotating curriculum and is meant to expose students to a wide variety of techniques. Have more questions? Email Please wear closed toed shoes and comfortable clothes. A water bottle is recommended.
