“Make Your Own Glass” sessions at First City Art Center are a hands-on glass experience.  No previous glassblowing skills needed!

What to Expect: The class will start with a brief overview of the tools and workplaces that you will use, the instructor will then work one-one-one with you to create a beautiful glass object. After finishing, your item will be put into an annealer (cooling oven). If you have several students in your class, you will take turns. This is a great chance to take pictures of family & friends blowing glass, and watch other artists work in the studio.  After your piece cools, the glass instructor will inspect it for any sharp points, then ready it for pick-up the following week in the main office.
