When you arrive at the historic Artscape Wychwood Barns building you will be greeted by one of our talented artists and given a brief tour of the century-old, converted streetcar repair facility. From there we will make our way to the glass studio, located on the second floor of barn 3. Before beginning our workshop we will complete waivers for every participant, go over health and safety procedures and, give a demonstration so you can see how each and every step of the creative process will unfold. Now we are ready to get blowing! In this interactive workshop, you will be applying coloured glass bits to hot glass and using all your hot air to blow a hot glass bubble until it bursts or collapses. From there, your instructor will encase your creation in clear glass preserving this one of a kind experience in a solid glass form. All work will be placed into our cooling kiln and will need to remain there overnight. Work will be available for pick up the next morning from our pickup location at 21 Benson (the north side of the same building). Workshops start promptly at scheduled time and will not go over allotted 1 hour session. Please ensure you arrive early.
