“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 will 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 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 picture of family & friends blowing glass, and watch other artists in the work in the studio. After your piece cools, the glass instructor will inspect it for any sharp points, then ready it for pick-up on Wednesday in the main office.
