Dating back to the first century B.C., glassblowing is one of the most popular techniques in glass art. If you would like to give this time-honored craft a try, several local studios have you covered. They'll help you make everything from ornaments to paperweights. The studios near our Tampa apartments include:
Morean Glass Studio
At the Morean Glass Studio, you can head behind the scenes to watch the resident artists create amazing glass pieces. In addition, you can also make your own unique works of art. Beginning Glassblowing is offered on Monday nights between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Over the course of four sessions, you'll learn basic vocabulary, hot shop safety, and how to produce solid glass sculptures and blown objects.
Step into Gott Glass for some glassblowing fun. The skilled instructors teach this time-honored art to anyone who wants to learn. They boast years of experience and enjoy sharing their passion with others. During the workshop, you'll receive one-on-one attention. You can make a flower, paperweight, or glass sculpture and gain skills you can build on during future workshops.
