Tumblers: Simple Perfection


May 28 - 30, 2021 9:00am to 4:00pm
Three-Day Workshop

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

In this three-day class, 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 cover a variety of decorative techniques for creating unique, beautiful drinking glasses. One year of glassblowing experience is required.

For the wellbeing of all students and staff, The Studio workshops have been modified, class capacity has been reduced, and sanitizing and social distancing protocols have been introduced. Detailed information about these measures can be found on The Studio Health and Safety page.
