An Introduction to Glassblowing: Half-day Saturday courses.
At Aaronson Noon, a leading studio in Surrey, our half-day course is an exciting and intensive experience aimed at introducing beginners or novices to the wonders of hot glass.
Our dedicated team of skilled makers offer instruction at a ratio of no more than three pupils per tutor - so you can be sure of individual attention and impressive results.
During the course you will be introduced to techniques such as:
- Gathering molten glass from a furnace,
- Shaping and working the glass using a variety of tools,
- Working with glass colours,
- Blowing a glass vessel.
By the end of the lesson, we expect you to have made several pieces, usually including a paperweight, a small sculpture and a blown vessel, which will be yours to keep and treasure!
Each class is three hours long - either on a Saturday morning or Saturday afternoon. This includes time before and after the 'hands on' part of the course for briefings and instructions. All safety equipment and materials are provided. The morning course starts at 10am and the afternoon course starts at 2pm.
All of our courses are taught by studio owner Adam Aaronson at the following address:
