Have you ever wanted to play with fire? Hot glass is one of the most thrilling, beautiful and captivating materials to play with; when you work it hot it becomes alive, it moves almost like a dance. The colours come to life with the heat of the furnace and the clarity of the material shines in a way only hand blown glass does. The crew at Tsunami Glassworks want to share this amazing experience with you!
On special occasion, and only a few times a year, we open up our glassblowing production facility inviting the public to come in and have a hand in crafting a beautiful piece of glass; paperweight, ornament, or drinking glass. Our instructors assist you in every step and our workshops are meant for beginners and enthusiasts of all ages.
In this one hour workshop you will learn the basics of glassblowing - learn to shape hot glass, apply colour, and hot form your completely unique glass ornament, decorative globe or solid sculpture.
Cost: $125 (plus HST) per person. Payment required at time of booking. Sorry, no refunds.
Each session will have 2 people per instructor for a total of 4 people per hour.
Space is available on a first come, first served basis. To book, please select your desired time slot. A confirmation email will be sent to you after you register and we will contact you prior to the class with instructions on what to bring/wear etc.
For larger groups or special events please contact Eva at eva @ tsunamiglassworks.com.
Recommended for beginners of all ages.
Due to the “annealing” (cooling) process, your glass creation will be available for pickup the week after the workshop, Monday - Friday from 9-5.
