Saturday, April 18th | 9:00am-12:00pm | Glassblowing Sampler


Explore the world of hot glass in this introductory sampler class. Through a brief lecture, demonstrations, and plenty of hands-on time, you will be guided through some quick fundamentals and assist as you shape molten glass into a flower and paperweight. Each student will make a total of 2-3 finished items (projects will be ready for pickup on the following Wednesday)

Please note: Not all hot glass classes involve physically blowing into the pipe/tube. Our 3-Hour Glassblowing Sampler Class is VERY interactive and involves physical activity! If this sounds like your idea for a great experience, we promise you a rewarding time! Please make sure to wear close-toed sneakers or boots, jeans and a cotton shirt. Dressing in layers is recommended since it can get warm when you are working. Do NOT wear flip-flops, open toed shoes or highly flammable clothing. To ensure the best possible class experience for all students, please contact Arc + Flame Center prior to class if you any have concerns with your vision, hearing, hand dexterity or mental health.

This class is appropriate for ages 16+.

This class will take place at Arc + Flame Center, located at 125 Fedex Way, Rochester NY.
