become a glass blower!

At Lumel Studios we take for granted that human's are smart, have a healthy fear of 1200 C molten glass and have wonderfully creative instincts! In fact we are trying to grow future glass blowers and from experience we know that working with hot glass is positively addictive and engaging. Have a look at 'Lumel sights and sounds - become a glass blower it's a great job!', the video shows us working but you too have the ability to join us.

Walk-ins

Usually working with molten glass takes 2 people but at Lumel we offer individual sessions to provide a taste of glass blowing. These sessions allow you to experience the heat and properties of glass, and you also create a piece to take home. This experience gives you an idea of the skill that is necessary in working with molten glass.

Important!

Lumels' days can get booked up quickly, so be sure to phone ahead if you have the ability to book a specific time.

Hot dates

We want to provide an opportunity for you to bring someone special to the studio and have fun creating together. A hot date night fulfils that purpose.  Date nights are for couples of any description: friends, parent/guardian and child, family groups, workplace partners, etc. Partnership is an aspect of glass blowing that is very important and most times essential in creating glass pieces with skill and finesse; very few glass artists work alone.
