Glassblowing
Level: 
Beginner
Duration: 
Three-Day Workshop

A tumbler is the first form that beginning glassblowers learn, but is also a form that is too often put aside by the glass student as their skill set grows. But a well-proportioned, tapered, thin-walled drinking glass is a challenge for beginning and intermediate glassblowers. Producing a matching set of four is a challenge for all but the most accomplished glassworkers.

In this three-day class, beginning and advanced-beginning students will learn different methods for creating consistent, thin-walled, matching tumblers. The class will also reinforce basic gathering, marvering and blocking skills needed for all glassblowing, and covers a variety of decorative techniques for creating unique, beautiful drinking glasses. No glassworking experience is required.
