Discover a fabulous new skill: blowing and sculpting glass in the flame. The class is taught by Glass Artist Mark Eliott. Mark will take you through the basics of glass blowing in this 2 hour introduction in his studio.

This 2 hour taster session will cover:

- The basics of glass blowing using a "oxygen-propane" torch
- Using both clear and coloured "borosilicate" glass rods and tubes (you'll learn various types at the workshop!)
- Techniques such as sculpting, joining, stretching, blowing, and colour mixing
- Safety Talk on using the glass blow torch

You are using both right and left parts of the brain in this creative process which combines planning with improvisation. Students will come on a creative adventure with glass flame-work which balances technique, structure and improvisation.

You will make at least one glass object that you can take home for your family and friends to admire, which could be a small glass animal, pendant or abstract creation; you might come away with several objects.
