In conjunction with the 2016 Maine Craft Weekend, Jacobson Glass Studio is offering the chance to try your hand at glassblowing free of charge. Experience the excitement of creating a drinking glass or vase. This opportunity is on a first-come, first- served basis. Participants will choose the colors and help inflate the hot glass while I shape it into its final form. When finished, I place the piece in the annealing oven to cool down overnight. Your piece will be ready the next day. You can come back to pick it up or, for a shipping fee, I will mail it to you. Plan on about 30 minutes per person. The minimum age is 12 (must be accompanied by an adult).
I will also be offering demonstrations of glassblowing throughout the day. And my gallery will be stocked with items including pumpkins, vases, glasses and bowls.
