Summer Glass Camp
Make Summer AMAZING at Glass Camp!
Indulge your child’s inner glass artist with a week of summer camp at Third Degree! Campers will enjoy five full days of hands-on glass art creation in all three of our studios. Sculpt and blow hot molten glass in the Glassblowing studio, melt glass rods over a torch to create glass beads in the Flameworking studio, and cut and layer “cold” glass to create unique designs in the Fused Glass studio. On the last day, campers will set up their very own showcase to highlight the amazing work they’ve created over the week!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
That glass is amazing and fun! Campers will be working objects that are hot and/or sharp. Enrollment for 2018 has been reduced to 16 campers to offer a more intimate environment. Campers will then separate into smaller groups and rotate throughout the three studios, switching after lunch.
