    Make a Heart of Glass with Atlantic Art Glass

    Heart of Glass

    Saturdays, February 4th & 11th
    $40.00  •  
    Reservations available after 10 a.m

    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 glassblowing 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 form. Although this is a swift exercise it reveals ancient glass techniques, that are a true wonder to experience.

    Age Restriction -14 years or older, under 18 accompanied by an  adult.

    Call 207.664.0222 to reserve a spot.

    Reservations available between 10am-2pm
    $40.00

    This experience introduces you to the basics of flameworking and offers a focused experience with hot glass. Tara Parker demonstrates how to work with molten glass at the torch, and guides you through the process of making one of your very own glass beads.

    You’ll start by turning a mandrel - a metal rod used in beadmaking - in the flame.

    Melting colored glass rods in the flame and applying the molten glass to your mandrel will create your bead design. How you wind the glass onto the mandrel makes patterns and beautiful unique glassy designs.

    Students should expect to spend one hour in the workshop as Tara makes her way to your turn the actual time spent making a bead is a fairly swift process and usually takes about 20- minutes.

    102_9716photo 2

    10 a.m.- 3 p.m.
    $60.00 • Supplies included

    This workshop is designed for beginners or anyone wanting a warping refresher. All levels are welcome.

    Students will choose yarns from our supply to create a one of a kind textile, such as a scarf, table runner or hanging fiber art by combining yarns of different weights and colors. Weave fabric to adorn your home or body while learning how to thread your loom, or ours.

    You will have access to a warping board and warping mill, and will learn how to use your tabletop to make a warp. Next a large variety of yarn and fiber of all types, colors and weights will be made available to you to use in your "scarf". Susan Perrine will show you fun and useful new techniques like creating a buttonhole, tapestry weaving, and lace insertion.

    Think of this workshop as a kind of weaving sampler, where you can explore different techniques and traditions that speak to you with Susan's expert guidance.

    You may not finish your piece during the workshop. But we plan to have our weaving studio open for students to continue during the following 3 weeks. More information on open studio time will be discussed during the workshop.

    Students will make small warps with about 100 warp threads/ends. (about 3-3 1/2 yards by 9 inches wide).

    All materials needed to make a complete piece will be provided. Although, specialty yarns (cashmere, silk, hand spun yarn, etc...) will be available for an additional cost.
