What we’ll do

I'll give you some introductory info about lampworking (glassblowing on a torch). We'll think of some design ideas. You'll draw on hot glass tubing with hot glass rod and execute your design!

Where you'll be

Over fifty artists and craftspeople working in an awesome 19th Century factory building. We're in the Italian Market/Hawthorne neighborhood of Philadelphia. We're near Bella Vista to the east, South Philadelphia and Center City. Our building is always buzzing with our many creative businesses and art studios.
