Prerequisite: NONE

Students 16 years and up may register for this class.

PLEASE NOTE—The price listed includes registration for ONE student. If you are registering as a couple, please process TWO registrations so that you are guaranteed two seats in the class when you register.

IMPORTANT: Students taking glass courses must wear natural fiber clothing (i.e., cotton shirt and denim jeans), closed toe shoes and hair tied back and out of the way. Loose clothing that will be in the way of the torch is strongly discouraged.

It’s another fun date night from the ACA glass faculty! Try your hand at making blown-glass ornaments. Using an oxygen-propane torch, students will learn basic techniques for using pre-blown glaskolben to make blown-glass ornaments. Frit will be used to add color to the clear glaskolben. Learning how to control heat, gravity and blowing techniques will determine your success. The cost of registration includes 6 glaskolben and a wide choice of frit colors. Creating these colorful ornaments will provide students a basis for working glass further in the torch. Ornaments will be available for pick up two weeks after the class. At that time, please bring packing material and small container to transport your ornaments to the safety of your home. Basic torch safety will be discussed.
