Blown Glasornaments Ornament Class at Glass Axis

Thursday, October 1
6-7 or 7-8 p.m.
$40 for members, $42 non-members
The Ohio Craft Museum and Glass Axis are partnering for this special introductory glass blowing class. This beginning-level class allows you to work with hot glass up close, while staying on the cool end of the pipe. You’ll start by selecting bits of colored glass and then partner with a glass artist to create your artwork. You will dip molten glass into your color, then inflate the ornament by blowing air through the moving blowpipe as the artist shapes the glass with advanced tools. Afterward, your ornament is removed from the blowpipe, a glass loop is added and it is placed in an oven to begin a slow cooling process. Ornaments will be ready for pick up in five days at the Ohio Craft Museum. While you’re here, check out the innovative glass sculptures in our fall exhibition, Fresh Perspectives: Young Artists with Ohio Connections, on view September 12 through October 25.

This class is for adults and teens. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. To register, call the museum at 614-486-4402. Credit card information will be taken at time of registration. Class sizes are small and space is limited, so register early to save your spot.
