Make a tumbler, vase or bowl!

  • 330 Australian dollars
  • Sheehan Road

Service Description

$330per student // Ages 14+ This class focuses on blowing glass and creating vessels with the blowpipe. The degree of difficulty of this class is slightly higher, so if you haven't done any glassblowing before we recommend trying our Hot Glass Experience class first. However if you are keen to dive right into vessels we're still happy to welcome you into the class. This class is all about vessel making. It's your choice whether you want to make a tumbler, vase or bowl. Each student will be given an opportunity to make a vessel in clear and colour. You'll be guided every step of the way from gathering glass from the furnace, blowing a bubble into the molten glass, shaping the vessel, transferring it to a punty iron, then opening it up! All tools and materials will be provided by the studio, just bring a snack and water bottle and come ready to learn and have fun. BEFORE CLASS: Students must arrive 5-10 minutes prior to class start time to sign a safety waiver and get acquainted with the studio. Bring a water bottle and a snack, come ready to learn! Closed toed shoes must be worn in the workshop. No loose or flowing clothing - cotton or natural fibres are a must. Please no leggings or synthetic fibres. Long hair should be tied back. The studio will provide safety glasses but you can wear your glasses if you’d like. CANCELLATIONS, RESCHEDULING, REFUNDS: Refunds or reschedules will be issued for student cancellations up to two weeks before class. Within 2 weeks we can offer a 50% refund. No refunds will be issued for cancellations within 48 hrs of class time.

Hothaus studio reserves the right to deny participation and not issue a refund if you arrive in improper attire, more than 30 minutes late, or appear ‘under the influence’ of drugs/alcohol. AFTER CLASS: Glass pieces will need to slowly cool for about 12-14 hrs once class finishes.
