Question from Katie U.
Anyone have a sense of how this glassblowing class is different from the other BG intro glassblowing course (same number of hours )?
Answer from S M G. Verified Student
I never took another course before this. I feel like I learned a lot in the amount of time I was there. I made 3 things, a tumbler, a bowl, and a paperweight. And none of them look like a child's art project from school! So we worked until the very end, not when we finished a project. There was time to do another, so we made another. Teachers were all nice and supportive.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience. The class consisted of a mix of demonstrations of what was possible with glass, hands on work creating glass objects and touring and understanding the facilities at Brooklyn Glass. I had no idea how glass blowing worked going in, and left with a very clear picture of the overall process. The instructor let us known early on that making a tumbler is a pretty advanced piece of glass blowing, and that he would be assisting a lot. This was certainly the case, but I was very happy with the amount of hands on work we got to do during this course, including learning how to gather and manipulate glass. You get up close and personal with several furnaces, so a high tolerance for heat is required. I left with a very beautiful paperweight and a questionably beautiful (but no less meaningful!) tumbler. I would position this class more as good way to see whether glass blowing is for you before signing up for the 8 week course. Given the price, it may be worth jumping directly into the 8 week course if you're confident you will remain interested.

The teachers were really great. It’s a tough class for beginners but I learned a lot and appreciated the helping hands. You have to be fearless because you’re dealing with a lot of heat and Super hot materials.

Class was a great introduction to glass blowing but keep in mind this is more about exposure to the process than learning how to make something on your own. I was very pleased with the two pieces I made with a LOT of assistance from a TA (who was super patient about listening to what I wanted the piece to look like). I found the TAs to be very helpful. If you are sensitive to heat wear long sleeves (or bring a tube sock) and dip your hand in the water before dipping your rod in the molten glass. Yes there is an oddly timed “lunch” break but it was nice to have a break from the heat and it’s unrealistic to think we could have made an extra piece during the lost time. Given the level of assistance necessary for each student I think the break is likely warranted for the instructors’ sake as well.
