“One of the best parts of my job is watching the wonder and excitement on kids’ faces when they experience live glassblowing," says Jacob Joslin, the Orwell Glass instructor who operates the glass workshop at the Maritime Museum.
No experience necessary.
Watch each process to see the steps you will try out. Work with an experienced glass blower and teacher to gain an introduction to each step in the process.
Glass-blowing is an ancient art that has changed little over the centuries. Glass changes color and flexibility as it cools from a liquid to a solid. Watching a skilled glassblower is mesmerizing.
Be sure to watch the whole video if you are interested in the Advanced Session. It will help you to understand the process, especially the use of repetition, that creates a beautiful, one of a kind tumbler! The Intro Session is required before the Advanced Session. You can schedule your Intro and Advanced sessions back-to-back.
