What you'll do

You will be welcomed with a drink and a tour at the property of the glass artist seeing some of his work and some work from fellow artists. Then Pieter will do a demonstration and explain the basics of working with hot liquid glass. Then its up to you! , trying to make your first piece of work in blown glass carefully guided by the artist. We suggest to make a drinking mug with colored rim together. The experience starts at the property of the artist at 1 pm and ends between 5 and 6 pm. Also for experienced glassblowers it will be an unforgettable experience blowing glass here in the countryside near Medellin with a stunning view over the valley. We believe it is the glassblowing studio with the the best view in the world.
