Susan Matych-Hager, instructor

Prerequisite: NONE
Students 16 years and up may register for this class.

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.

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. Creating these colorful ornaments will provide students a basis for working glass further in the torch. Each student will be provided 6 glaskolben and a wide selection of frit colors. 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.
