The Festival Town on the Edge of the Lake District
In this unique 1 hour experience for two people, you will learn to make a blown glass bud vase. Your instructor will ‘gather’ molten glass from the furnace on a blowing iron; you will then shape the glass into the correct form before your instructor blows the initial bubble to get the vase started. You will learn how to inflate and shape the glass using traditional wood, newspaper and metal tools. The bubble will then be transferred to a separate punty iron before being opened up to create your finished vessel.
Although not guaranteed, we hope to send you away with a finished bud vase for you each to enjoy.
This experience will definitely challenge! This is an excellent gift idea.
