The Glass Furnace Foundation offers you a great opportunity to have fun with your children on holiday, to learn while having fun, and to uncover different aspects of their creativity!
It is creating opportunities for children to develop themselves on Sundays and on school holidays at The Glass Furnace. Workshops include glass blowing, fusing, engraving and bead making, total of 2 hours.
Bead Making: Colored glass rods are melted in the table top torch (şalumo) and sometimes they are rolled into steel shapes, sometimes wrapped in other glass rods and turned into new shapes. In this way, beads, tiny figures and various objects can be created.
Glass Blowing: With the steel rods called Pipe, the hot glass gathered from the furnace, is blown, pulled out, stretched, cut and shaped with various heat-resistant tools. It can be transformed into a lot of small size, different looks and colors. When you realize that you can deal with a glass of honey consistency, the pleasure you feel can be really satisfying.
Glass Fusion: Two or more pieces of glass are placed in the desired composition, then fused into a single piece of glass in kilns, with the help of temperature. Panels, tables, vases, sculptures, shaped like relief, if desired with heat help, are shaped without any bounds depending on your creativity.
Please make sure you call before you show up for children workshops, since the instructors work with children one on one, we can only work with reservation.
