Glass Blowing Demonstration, Glass Engraving
and Painting Workshop, Offered by
Homewood House Museum

Learn how to engrave and paint glass, and watch a glassblower create unique art during "Glass is a Blast," a demonstration and workshop, sponsored by the Homewood House Museum.

The workshop and visit to Baltimore artisan Anthony Corradetti's Hollins Market glass studio is offered in conjunction with the museum's exhibit Bubble to Bottle, Pontil to Prism: Early Glass in Maryland, 1785 - 1835, and will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5. Participants will meet at the museum located on the campus of the Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

During the first part of the day, the museum will provide tours of the exhibit and workshops allowing participants to learn glass engraving and painting techniques that can be used on everyday glass objects. A drinking glass will be provided for participants to work on and take home. A tour of the exhibition is included with the workshop. Bring a bag lunch, light refreshments are provided.

Then, in two shifts at 2 and 3 p.m., participants will travel via car pool to Corradetti's studio and gallery to observe glass-blowing techniques. Corradetti, who studied under Dale Chihuly, a world renowned glassblower, is known for his interesting use of primary colors in making utilitarian works of art.

Tickets for "Glass is a Blast" are $15 for museum members and children, and $18 for adults. This program is not recommended for children under 10. Space is limited. For reservations or more information, call 410-516-5589.
