Glaskolben is the German name for the clear glass cylinder used for blowing decorative ornaments. You will learn how to decorate these with a variety of frits and stringers (thin rods of glass) and how to heat them properly in order to blow them into beautiful ornaments.
Each student receives 10 glass tubes and an assortment of colorful glass frits, stringers, and other decorative bits to personalize your creation. It may take a little practice, but after a very short time you will be making some lovely one-of-a-kind handmade ornaments! They will be ready in a day or two to pick up and hang on the tree.
