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.
Master glassblower Lino Tagliapietra will be visting the Hot Shop at the Toledo Museum of Art this May. He’ll be in residence as part of the Guest Artist Pavilion Project, which encourages artists to use or respond to the museum’s glass collection.
Ticketed demonstrations will take place May 2–3 and May 8–10, with morning and afternoon sessions each day. Tickets are $25 for students and $30 for general admission. Ticket purchases are limited to four per person per session.
