Make Your Own Christmas Ball - December
In this beginner-friendly glassblowing class you will be making your very own handblown Christmas ball! These were traditionally made in European factories where the workers would use remaining colour from the day's work, roll it up, blow it out, then give the colourful balls to their friends. These are called Friendship Balls so they make great gifts for the holidays and all year round!
You will learn how to roll up glass colour, twist and cut the colour for exciting effects, then blow it out into a beautiful ornament. Hang it on your tree, on a window frame where the sunlight pours through, or give it to a friend as an original gift!
Glass needs a day to anneal (cool off slowly). Finished pieces are easy to come pick up the next day. If you are from out of town we can ship pieces.
Safety: Please wear close-toed shoes and cotton clothing. Eye protection is also important. If you wear seeing glasses those are fine. Sunglasses are fine too. We alsohave eyewear at the studio you can use.
We are located at 427 22 Ave NW in Mount Pleasant.
