Have a go at the ancient art of making glass at one of Bath Aqua Glass’s half-day workshops. This is a hands-on course where you will learn all the basic skills of hot glass working with a professional glassblower in order to make your own paperweight and learn the magical way glass is sculpted. By the end of the session you will have learnt all the essential techniques, from gathering glass from the furnace, shaping and tooling the molten glass to applying colour and finishing. You will be able to take home your own piece of art after it has cooled down overnight.
