IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS & CORNELL NORCAL EVENTS

As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Sincerely,

Cornell NorCal Board of Directors

Learn glass blowing! Blow impressive large pieces with your own hands, choosing from a variety of colors! 


Cornell NorCal looks forward to hosting you for this exciting event! Come spend the day blowing glass with fellow Cornell Alums at a professional glass blowing studio – Slow Burn in Oakland.  Learn the art form of glassblowing in this class, Instructed by CEO Bryan and his jolly team


The venue is a professional 2300 square foot production shop with two “glory holes” and a 500 pound furnace. Work with glowing, molten glass, followed by flame-polished finishing of your personal creation.


This class is ideal for those who are interested in learning about the glassblowing process and thrive in a learning environment that emphasizes hands-on, learn-by-doing teaching style. In the class session, student artists create their own blown glass art work of a solid paperweight and a beer mug or stem drinking glass.

Absolutely no experience or artistic background will be assumed, but the instructors are able to accommodate more advanced students as well as beginners. Your glass creation will be available for pickup after a 48 hour annealing process or you can opt for a shipment to you (at additional cost).


Schedule: Sessions 1 & 3 have been cancelled due to insufficient headcount. There will be one session (max 10 participants).  If there are additional signups before the class then we will accommodate you. But feel free to come early or stay late to watch others go through the class or ask questions.


Each session begins with a 15 minute sign-in & orientation by Bryan & his team, followed by 2 hours of hands-on instruction.
