Adult classes at Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass are designed for anyone 16 and older who is interested in creating glass art. Professional artists teach a wide variety of glass making techniques to offer opportunities for different interests and skill levels. You will get a lot of personal attention and have the ability to create a piece of your dreams. Most adult classes are designed to be around 3 hours long and include enough time for instruction and creation of a piece of your own. The Glass Studio offers classes in both FUSING and FLAMEWORKING.
FUSING classes will teach you how to make different styles of art using professional tools, equipment, and materials. Each class offers instruction, use of the glass studio to create a piece, and the kiln firing of your masterpiece. Students use sheet glass to create a project that will be fused and potentially slumped after creation.
FLAMEWORKING uses gas torch flames for creating artwork with glass tubes and rods. Start out with a beginning bead or sculpture class. We will also be introducing paperweight making classes soon and adding even more hot glass opportunities.
You can register for classes here, online, or call us with questions at 920.751.4658.
