Glass Blowing For Beginners Explore the fundamentals of glass blowing. Students create a 3-4 inch hanging vessel for a votive candle (or a round ornament) with the help of Glass Shop instructor, Jason Dederich. Glass blowing is an art, and the craft takes time to master. This session enables participants to join with a small group to get a sense of the process.
