Blow Your Own Glass!

Blow Your Own Glass is an opportunity to assist an artist in creating a glass object of your choice and design. Each participant will make one of several basic forms of their own choosing: ornament, paperweight, sea float, flower, small cup, or bowl. Teaching Artist Stephen Fellerman will spend approximately 30 minutes with each person while creating magic before your eyes! You will choose the colors for your unique glass object, learn about basic tools and techniques, and even try your hand at some of the process! Feel the heat and make a memorable glass keepsake of your own design! Note: Pieces will be available for pick up 24-48 hours after class; flat rate shipping is also available on request at an additional charge. Scheduling is dependent on studio and instructor availability. Phone 572-6560 to book your reservation.

About the Teaching Artists

Stephen Fellerman grew up in New York and attended Pratt Institute where he took a ceramics class and experienced working with his hands for the first time. Upon graduation, Fellerman headed west to Sausalito, CA to discover one of the most creative art centers in the country- a small glass studio (one of the few at the time). He watched others and absorbed a variety of techniques, then experimented during his allotted time. After a year in California, he returned east to Kent, Connecticut to open his own studio, becoming one of the first studio glass artists to make a living from glassblowing. Responding to a style resurgence, Fellerman specialized in Art Nouveau inspired pieces, and his reputation grew. By the early 1980s, with increasingly more artisans blowing glass, he began to branch out into more personal and original work. He had a passion for the process, and spent years refining its expression to “push the envelope” of his medium. Fellerman says he hopes to blow glass until his last breath. His works are part of the Corning Museum of Glass permanent collection, Corning N.Y.; The Chrysler Museum permanent collection, Norfolk, VA.; and the White House Collection, Washington D.C.; Queen Beatrice of the Netherlands, private collection.; and “North American Glass” Gilford Handicraft center, Gilford Connecticut; Hartford Square North.

Beginning Glassblowing #1363-1366

If you are ready to gain a solid background in basic glassblowing techniques, this is the class for you! Students will learn to create a variety of shapes, which may include paperweights, ornaments, cups, bowls, and more. With each new shape, students will refine skills at gathering glass onto the rod, shaping it with various tools, and adding basic color applications to glass. Hot shop safety, etiquette, and proper form are all stressed throughout each lesson. Class sizes are limited to enhance learning!
