Glass Pumpkin Glassblowing Class

One of our favourite forms has long been the gourd!

Get into the hot seat this fall and assist in making your very own glass pumpkin! This class is structured similar to the blow your own ornament classes. Students take their turn inflating a bubble into the glass, with the added steps of blowing down into an optic mold to create the ridged glass needed for the pumpkins lines. Book for yourself, or a group and build your own pumpkin patch.
