Glass blowing course
Pat has always been interested in Glass blowing. Previously whenever we went to Scotland or anywhere that had glass blowing facilities, we would always go visit. So last Christmas when I was at my wit's end as to what to give him for Christmas - I asked him and he said he wanted to do a glass blowing course. I was not really interested to go but he did want me to come along as well, so I booked a place for 2 for April! I was just worried about not being able to do it but after the thrill of making your own glass ware, I am hooked! It was a 2 day course, on Saturday, we made a paperweight and a vase and on Sunday, we made a Christmas bauble and a plate. As the glass needs to be anealed for it to cool down so it does not crack, we got the Saturday one on Sunday and the Sunday ones were supposed to be couriered to us. I paid £20 to have it sent to us but we got cheated. They never sent it to us and both Pat and I are so disappointed as we wanted to see the finished products! Here are some of the pictures taken during the 2 days!
