Originating from the Roman Empire, glassblowing involves shaping molten glass into intricate objects using specialised tools and a blowpipe.

If you’ve marvelled at the beauty of glass sculptures and wondered about the process behind them, this hands-on experience provides the perfect opportunity. Led by a professional, the session covers the fundamentals of glassblowing in a personalised setting.

The half-day session serves as an introduction to the craft, encompassing the properties of glass, gathering and shaping techniques, and the use of various tools. Participants craft their own glass object—a paperweight, vase, or bowl—to take home as a cherished memento.

Opting for a one-to-one session ensures flexibility in scheduling, allowing you to choose a date and time that suits your convenience. Additionally, learning in a private setting guarantees a safe and comfortable environment. Working with hot molten glass requires supervision, and the instructor can closely monitor your progress, ensuring adherence to safety protocols.

Beyond technical skills, the session provides insight into the art and history of glassblowing. Engage with the instructor, inquire about their experiences, and discover diverse styles and techniques, enriching the experience with cultural and educational elements. Give your artistic mom a truly unique and unforgettable Mother’s Day gift—an exploration into the captivating world of glassblowing at EM Glass.
