Service Description

Dates: 2 weeks Tues/Thurs: 8/6, 8/8, 8/13, 8/15 Glass culture has historically lacked diversity, often feeling exclusive. At Public Glass, we're reshaping this narrative with our inclusive glassblowing classes, welcoming LGBTQIA+ individuals. Our aim? To foster community, skill development, and learning in a supportive, safe environment. We're breaking barriers to create collaborative learning experiences, where participants can embrace their identities, learn about glassblowing, and forge friendships. Led by LGBTQIA+ instructors, this class requires no prior experience and will teach all the same content as our Level 1 class. In our closely supervised, team-driven 2-week course, students learn the basics of hot glass. Through hands-on instruction, they explore the effects of heating, cooling, and gravity on molten glass. This course covers everything from studio safety to tool usage. Students gain proficiency in solid and blown glass techniques, mastering each step with instructor support. Please wear closed toed shoes and comfortable clothes. A water bottle is recommended. Interested in renting on your own? Take levels 1-4 and be able to rent your own hot shop slot!
