October = Saturday blown glass pumpkin making demonstrations!!
Well as always we get pretty fired up in the fall. The furnaces get turned on after a 6-8 week summer break. This time of the year we open our studio on Saturdays from 10am-2pm for glassblowing demonstrations. And October is especially fun because we make lot's of pumpkins!
If you visit you might notice that all the colors outside begin to reflect the colors of our hot shop inside. No one can deny that the cool weather makes us extra happy to gather around the fires to make glass.
Saturday October 1 from 10-4 we will be celebrating Maine Craft Weekend.

Type of workshop: Sculpting Hot Glass
Make something really special - a gift from the heart! You will transform molten glass into a small solid heart shaped paperweight with our expert help.This experience allows you to work with hot glass up close, with help from our glassblowers.
You’ll start by choosing the glass colors you want to use in your solid glass heart, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create it. After applying and heating the colors you will sit at the glass blowing bench and learn how to use the “pucinellas” to shape and swirl the molten glass. When the interior design is complete the glass will be cased in clear crystal, and shaped into its final heart shaped form. Although this is a swift exercise it reveals ancient glass techniques, that are a true wonder to experience.
