Spring is in the air, and we’re celebrating by blowing hot glass!
You too can experience the excitement of furnace glassblowing under the direct supervision of a master glass blower. This is a great way to sample making beautiful furnace glass.
We offer several one-day classes this spring through Ann Arbor Rec&Ed that cover everything from blown forms to garden balls and sculptures.
Annette will be participating in an Art Open House today, Nov. 21 from 4pm to 8pm, and Sunday the 23rd from 12noon to 4pm. Please stop by to say hello, see some great art, and maybe take something home!
Are you interested in blowing glass, but concerned about investing in regular 8-week studio classes? Come and get a taste of what it’s like by enrolling in one or more of our Ann Arbor Rec & Ed classes!
Starting in April, we have several different options to choose from! The links below will take you directly to the registration info for that specific class. You can read more about the class at the link itself.
Graham Gerdes from Community High School in Ann Arbor stopped in to the glass studio a few weeks ago, and had this to say about it:
Hot, dangerous, delicate and beautiful. At Baron Glassworks in Ypsilanti, MI, local artists are fusing together their ideas and inspirations to form functional, and aesthetic art.
Annette Baron, sole proprietor and founder of Baron Glassworks, has been blowing glass for 23 years. “I have had the studio for 16 years. It was 1997, and then I lit the furnace Nov. 24 1998. This furnace has been on ever since,” said Baron.
