Glass blowing is a glass forming technique which was invented in the 1st Century. The blow pipe was invented in the 1820's. Well known, local glass artist, Peter Patterson, will give us a personal tour of his Studio, Gallery and Hot Shop, to be followed by a live demonstration as he creates a Blown Art Glass Piece. For those who want to give it a try, for $35 you can choose your own colors and be taken through the steps to create your own unique Art Glass Piece.
Dress code for those working with hot glass: Long pants and closed toe shoes.
Note: Pieces will not be ready to take home the same day as they need to cool down for 24-48 hours.
