Take a glass blowing class with teacher extraordinaire Bob Pozarski at the Peninsula  
Art Academy!!
 
 
As a beginner, you will learn how to make a colorful paperweight, a vase or even a tumbler. Each beginner gets to make two projects during the 5-hour long workshop.
 

Beginner and advanced students can also make single- or multi-colored orbs.

 
Introductory Glass Blowing
 
Beginners will start by making a paperweight. You will learn how to dip the molten glass, get the colored glass, and shape into a symmetrical shape. The shape can be altered if desired.

On a second turn, the same day, the student will blow the molten glass into a bubble, then shape it into a cup or bud vase.

Although the work is challenging, and requires some coordination, Bob will carefully walk you through it. 
Please wear cotton layers, we start out cool, but  
get hot quickly. Bring drinking water. We have glasses to wear, or bring your own.

Advanced Glass Blowing
 
After a few beginning classes, the advanced students work on bigger projects, or more difficult shapes. Teamwork is required for the more challenging color techniques, and larger shapes. We may make orbs and bowls, pull cane, or do overlays.

Students come with ideas, sketch them, and we will attempt to make it happen. Difficult projects may hit the floor ... there's no crying in glass blowing!!!

Advanced students often search out colored glass supplies as part of the process to be learned, and buy some of their own colors. We use glass compatible with a 96 coefficient of expansion (COE).
