Immerse yourself in glass working as you delight in the natural beauty of New York’s Finger Lakes region. Divide 20 studio hours between furnace working, flame working, and cold working as highly qualified glassmakers instruct and help you create beautiful glass objects. At the furnace, try your hand at glassblowing and work with molten glass to fashion paperweights and vessels. Using the basics of flame working, make beads and small scale sculptures. In the kiln shop, create fused jewelry pieces, small slumped projects and learn to sandblast glass. • Don't just watch a demonstration — make glass yourself! • Enjoy a historic walking exploration of the restored Market Street district of downtown Corning. • Marvel at 3500 years of glassmaking at the finest glass museum in the world.
