Blow Baby Blow: Pumpkin Edition

October 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$275

Experience a very special date this year at J. Draper Glass.

Let the team of J. Draper Glass mesmerize you with hot glass demonstrations for a greater understanding of the art of fire with hand blown glass.

Play together & understand how soft the glass is to make your creations. Each experience offers unique techniques to create your masterpiece. Learn how to roll into frit (crushed colored glass), pick up chards, twist, tool, press and cut the soft glass.  Watch the bubbles expand with your own breath as you help each other shape & blow the glass. With great guidance, have a hands-on experience with hot glass to treasure for years.

For the first time ever, we are offering a special Blow Baby Blow class to make two Blown Pumpkins! Create your own blown pumpkin to treasure, display and talk about for years. Learn how to roll into color, heat, pinch & paddle the glass to create your pumpkin. Watch it grow with the breath of your air! The pumpkin is finished by topping it off with a curly stem.

**Date night tickets are for two people.

Cheese Platter

Blow a huge bubble & spin it into a platter! Our instructors will guide you to roll into color, heat the glass and use a variety of the glass blowers’ tools. Then, using gravity & centripetal force, spin the glass until it opens into a platter (10-12” wide)
