For one of the most unique things to do in NYC on a weekend, engage in a Private Glass Blowing Class in NYC!
Challenge your creative side and immerse yourself in one of the most innovative and beautiful things to do in NYC as you explore the magic of a Private Glass Blowing Class!
Let your imagination run wild as you try your hand at a timeless art form. Enjoy the comfort, personalization and professionalism of learning in an exclusive studio setting. Absorb enticing topics surrounding the practice of glass blowing like its history, tools, skills and techniques, handling, cold working, color application, and more. Delight in a number of customized demonstrations, then give the methods a try for yourself!
Your instructor has over 25 years of expertise in this intriguing trade and has been a featured artist in various books and other media.
This one-time class is fantastic for beginners and starts out with a brief history of glass blowing, as well as the processes that are used. Next you'll review tools and set up shop in the studio! Observe and practice "gathering" the glass to make a couple of small items (typically marbles or a flower). Work your way up to creating a paperweight with vibrant layers of color that is sure to brighten up any space.
Saturdays - 12:00 PM, 3:00 PM
You don't need any glass blowing experience. All skill levels are welcome, whether it's your first time giving glass blowing lessons a go, or you have prior experience. The instructor will be sure to tailor the class to best fit your ability.
Due to the heating and cooling characteristics of glass, your creation must be left overnight at the studio, to cool in the oven and set properly. Items may be picked up by students shortly thereafter, and shipping is available (for a fee) for those unable to return to the Brooklyn location.
