Each class starts with a short glassblowing demo and safety rules of the studio. You will choose the glass colors you want to use for your one-of-a-kind glass Paperweight. You will then partner with a skilled glassblower and take a seat at the glassblower’s bench to Make Your Own Paperweight while working with hot glass up close, Using a combination of heat, gravity and tools provided, you will manipulate color into a unique design and add more clear glass over it to create your Paperweight. After you and the glassblower have shaped your Ornament, it is removed from the blowpipe and placed in a special oven to begin a long slow cooling process.
