What to Wear?

For Glassblowing Classes:

  • All-natural fibres like cotton; no synthetics. 
  • Lightweight t-shirts and long pants are recommended.  
  • Wear clothes you don't mind getting sweaty and a bit dirty in.
  • Closed-toed shoes like sneakers or boots, or comfortable shoes that cover your entire foot. No open-toed or high-heeled shoes, no sandals, no ballet flats. 
  • Avoid jewellery, as it can heat up and burn your skin
  • Tie your hair back. (We provide hair ties and barrettes if you forget.) 

For Beadmaking, Flameworking and Sandblasting:

  • All-natural fibres like cotton; no synthetics.  
  • Long sleeved shirt with a crew neck or higher, as sometimes small pieces of glass can chip off while working. 
  • Closed-toed shoes that cover your entire foot. 
  • Tie your hair back. (We provide hair ties and barrettes if you forget.)
